Where is the Phonetic Guide button in Microsoft Word 2011?

Hi, I'm having trouble putting in phonetic guides (aka ruby text or furigana) for my Japanese text in word.
I've looked up the help topic, and it says to click on this button under the fonts section:



But all i can find under "fonts" is this:



i.e. no phonetic guides button? Am i just really blind?
Help please & thank you!

I've found it! After days of struggling and experimenting, I have located the button!

If anyone's having the same problem, here's how I got the button to show up:

1. Close any MS Office documents open.

2. Open Finder > Macintosh HD > Applications > Microsoft Office 2011 > Additional Tools > Mircosoft ...ge Register

3. When the alert pops up, change the drop down language from English to Japanese and press OK.

4. Set your text to Japanese and all the language features will be there! Including gridlines for genkoyoushi and ruby text.

Hurrayyy~

Phonetic guide for Chinese

I'm having the same problem except I need a phonetic guide for typing in Chinese. The Microsoft Language Register only has English and Japanese as options. Anyone know how to fix this?

Hi. I have found a way to get the Chinese options. You need to have Chinese (simplified or traditional) input already added into your Mac before you get to see the options available for Chinese.

When u have chosen Chinese from the drop down menu as stated above, go to Word and choose Format>Asian Layout>Phonetic Guide. You will get what you see in Word for windows ) Hope it helps.

Hi! I've followed the steps in the second post in this thread to use Japanese in Word, but I can't work how to create genkoyoushi. I've tried downloading genkoyoushi templates but can't work out how to type in those either. Can anybody help please?
