Microsoft Word macro to disable ribbons


We need a macro developed in Visual Basic that will, when run, disable (either make invisible or non-selectable) all the ribbons and toolbars in the word document that can alter the text, such as font, size, color, etc.

The person using the word document should only be able to put in text with default font and size and not be able to do any changes what so ever on the size/font/color/positioning etc. Basically everything should be as when the document is write-protected only that the text in default font and size can be written.

The macro should work with the documents that are partially write-protected.

The macro should not be automatically run but only run when called externally.

Additional to macro, instructions on how to add macro to the word document and how to call it externally are required.

Half of the payment will be done before and half after the macro is delivered, tested and confirmed that it is working.

The deadline is one day after the job is awarded to the developer. It is a rather small task for someone who is well versed with this topic so it should be relatively easy to do in a day.

To confirm that you are serious and that you read the whole project description, please write “I AM A REAL PERSON” in capital letters on top of your response. Only replies that start like that will be considered.

Skills: Microsoft, Visual Basic, Word
