    Does anybody know how I can download new office assistants for Office 2004? There is a gallery for office assistants, but there aren't any other choices. How do I get other choices?

    Microsoft made this really lame

    Here is how Microsoft told me to do this. (I was shocked they even replied to my inquiry.) You must have Office v. X for Mac, and pull the Assistants from the folder in there to the folder in Office 2004. Genius, huh? If you want office assistants, you have to own a previous copy of Office v. X. I fail to understand why they couldn't have made improvements to the office assistants and made them look neat like in Windows. Microsoft just has something against Macs I guess.

    I used to like them because they did some instersting stuff but then they just started getting in the way and I no longer like them being around. there novilty wares off really pretty fast.

    That might of been why MS drop them is a vast majority of people dont like them and never use them so they chose not to waste the money on them
