    I had some meticulously customised toolbars in Word and Excel 2011. After installing the Office 2016 preview, I found to my dismay that the toolbars had been reset to the default settings.

    Before I sink another significant amount of time to recreate my toolbars, does anyone know where exactly (in which files) these customisations are stored? Since I have TimeMachine backups, it would be much easier to restore the old files.

    It's apparently not the plist files in the Preferences folder, by the way.

    Okay, half-way there: that restored my Excel toolbars, but not the ones for Word.
