Chapter 7. Templates, Wizards, and Add-Ins > Understanding Word Add-Ins

Understanding Word Add-Ins

Templates and wizards are powerful, but if you want to customize your Word environment even more, you should know about add-ins. These are separate dynamic link libraries (.DLLs) that extend Word's capabilities, adding new features and custom commands. They're compiled, so they typically run faster than macros can. Like DLLs, they have access to the full capabilities of the Windows operating system. After they're built, they are renamed as .WLLs to indicate that they are Word linked libraries.

Many third-party Word add-ins are available. One of the best, Woody's Office Power Pack(WOPR) from Pinecliffe International (http://www.wopr.com), is included on Que's Special Edition WOPR 2000 Pack CD that accompanies this book. WOPR adds sophisticated envelope creation, file management, and many other features to Word.
