Before Word 2007, it was possible to add a custom toolbar to Word with a number of style buttons on it (for example: Heading 1, Heading 2, Body Text, List Bullet, ...).

This made it easy to see and use the styles that had to be used for a document (or template).

As I've understood that Word 2007 doesn't (easily) allow to add toolbars, is there any alternative in Word 2007 to get similar functionality?

Solution: as it isn't really obvious from the answer below: the 'Styles' section in the Home tab contains a 'Style Set Gallery'. The styles that are included in this gallery can be customized through the use of Style Sets (Change Styles > Style Sets).

Word 2007 has the "Styles" section in the Home tab that should have the exact same functions as you want.

No, it does not, because it contains styles I don't want to use in a document. In Word 2003 and earlier it was possible to create a toolbar with ONLY the styles that had to be used in a document. – Rabarberski Oct 9 '09 at 9:12
Hmm, seems I jumped to conclusions to quickly. Indeed, one can create a 'Style Set' and add and remove certain stylesfrom the Style Set Gallery. – Rabarberski Oct 9 '09 at 9:31
However, after more than 2 years, I should say that I don't like to use it (and haven't really). – Rabarberski May 23 '12 at 9:08
