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).
