    I just upgraded to Office 2008.. How do I enable Adobe Acrobat toolbar in Office? The toolbar showed up in WORD but has vanished in Excel and Powerpoint.

    I remember this was also an issue in previous Office versions. Adobe Acrobat works fine through file print command. But for some reason I see no way to enable the toolbar. Help appreciated.

    I have a fresh install of both Office 2008 (installed first) and then Adobe Acrobat Pro 8, and I don't seem to have the PDF toolbar anywhere. This is on Leopard.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    (I already tried the Repair Acrobat Installation option in Acrobat, no luck.)

    I've just discovered this myself. It appears that because Office 2008 dropped Visual Basic support, the PDF Maker button no longer installs (the script being based on VB). Blame You-Know-Who.

    At the minute I can't even seem to print to Adobe PDF 8.0 printer either. Not a huge problem in OSX, but it makes me wonder what else isn't working. I'm using 10.5.2.
