Having trouble launching Woodpecker

Hey there! I am trying to launch Woodpecker on my Mac, but Woodpecker does not seem to be opening in the word document under the home tab. How can I fix this?

Hi Maddison,

It sounds like you might be using a version of Word earlier than 2016 16.0.6769.

Word requires this version (or later) for “Add-in commands” to display in the command ribbon (i.e. the Woodpecker button on the “Home” tab). More info here.

To launch Woodpecker from an earlier version of Word:

  1. Click on Insert
  2. Select My add-ins
  3. Click on the Woodpecker icon

You can check out our help center article on this topic for additional information and context here. If you have any other questions, please let me know.
