VBA code may not run in Full Screen Reading view in Word 2013


When attempting to run a macro in a read-only document that is opened in Full Screen Reading View in Word 2013, the code may not run. For example, when attempting to run Selection.Find.Execute you may receive the error message "Run-time error '4605': This method or property is not available because this command is not availble for reading."

More Information

This issue is by design, as Full Screen Reading View is not intended to allow code to run. To avoid this issue, uncheck the Word option "Open e-mail attachments and other uneditable files in reading view". With this option deselected, read-only documents will open in Print View as in previous versions of Word, and the code will run successfully.
