Process File-> New in Word 2007

I am writing a VSTO add-in for Word 2007. When the user selects File-> New (or selects it from the Quick Access Toolbar), I need to display the UserForm instead of the standard New Document dialog box. How should I do it? I don't see an application that I can handle and I cannot find a button to add an event handler.

Ok, just found it. You need to create xml Ribbon and then add commands for these buttons. In this case, the xml feed is

    <command idMso="FileNew" onAction="FileNewOverride"/>
    <command idMso="FileNewDefault" onAction="FileNewOverride"/>


and the code behind is

public void FileNewOverride(Office.IRibbonControl control, ref bool cancelDefault)
        //do something


This practical MSDN tutorial shows you how to do it
