Hi Jake,

thx for the quick reply. Found it.
I have more questions:
  1. I to have a rather large ribbon menu created by Visual Studio designer. Is there a way to convert this easily to XML?
  2. I'm working on a word template (not AddIn) an make heavily use of contentcontols can I handle this with VSTOContrib?

Visual studio does have a way to export your ribbon to Ribbon XML (not sure where the button is, but it is somewhere in the designer). I think its just a button.

As for 2, I have not used VSTO contrib on a word template, it has only been tested with application level add-ins. I highly doubt it would work, and I haven't done much with document level add-ins so not sure where the problems would be.

Hope that helps.
