Hi, using the bibword styles in office 2016 preview (on both win and osx version), installing them as usual, doesn't seem to work. Am I missing something obvious or is it to be expected?

edit: Actually, some of the styles do work: the ones that I can't use are CMSFootnote and MHRAFootnote, sorry

Thank you in advance

I did it. MHRAFootnote had a different code under the "Handle the different types of input documents." section, I copied it from the working styles and now everything is ok.

This was the different / missing code to change:
      <!-- Gets the name of the style as it will be displayed in Word 2007 / 2010. -->
      <xsl:when test="b:StyleName">
        <xsl:value-of select="msxsl:node-set($data)/general/stylename"/>

      <!-- Gets the version information for the style in Word 2007 / 2010. -->
      <xsl:when test="b:Version">
        <xsl:value-of select="msxsl:node-set($data)/general/version"/>

      <!-- Sets a version number in Word 2013. -->
      <xsl:when test="b:XslVersion">
          <xsl:when test="msxsl:node-set($data)/general/version2013">
            <xsl:value-of select="msxsl:node-set($data)/general/version2013"/>
            <!-- Fallback method : use a dummy version number of 1. -->

      <!-- Set the name of the style in Word 2013. -->
      <xsl:when test="b:StyleNameLocalized">
        <xsl:value-of select="msxsl:node-set($data)/general/stylename"/>

I Just found your post, after asking for help about getting MHRA to work with 2016. I have no idea how you got it to work. Can you give me some pointers (where to put which file and what code to change in which file) please?

Hi, it's quite some time since I worked on it and I ended up modifying and using CMSFootnote, so I deleted my modified version of the MHRA. If you need, if I find some time tomorrow I'll give MHRA a try and (if I manage to recall what I did last year) report back to you.

P.S. I'm not an expert in this kind of things, so even if I succeed, the result won't be "perfect"
