This Microsoft Word Tips & Microsoft Word Help page introduces my "Compact Bookmark Tool" template add-in. This add-in supplements my full-featured Bookmark Tool.  Compact Bookmark Tool has been tested in Word 2003/2007 and 2010.  Developed using Word 2003, the two button add-in toolbar shown below propagates like functional commands on the Word 2007/2010 ribbon Add-Ins tab.

The two commands function to add or remove a customized command button control to the mouse "Text" (right click menu).  The illustration below shows the control added to the menu.

Clicking the "Show Bookmarks" initializes the compact bookmark tool and displays the user interface as a small, modeless Userform illustrated below.

With this tool you can:

The Add/Delete command to opens the standard "Insert Bookmark" dialog to add or delete bookmarks.

The modeless Userform means that you can leave it on the screen while you work in the document.
