Document.DisableFeaturesIntroducedAfter Property

Office 2007
Disables all features introduced after a specified version of Microsoft Word in the document only. Read/write WdDisableFeaturesIntroducedAfter.



expression   Required. A variable that represents a Document object.


The DisableFeatures property must be set to True prior to setting the DisableFeaturesIntroducedAfter property. Otherwise, the setting will not take effect and will remain at its default setting of Word 97 for Windows.

The DisableFeaturesIntroducedAfter property only affects the document for which the property is set. If you want to set a global option for the application to disable features for all documents, use the DisableFeaturesIntroducedAfterByDefault property.


This example disables all features added after Word for Windows 95, versions 7.0 and 7.0a, for the current document only. The global default setting remains unchanged.
