Copying the add-in locally

If you are browsing to an add-in that is not saved on your local C drive then you will see the following message as soon as you press OK asking if you want to save a copy of this add-in locally.
You should always select "No" to prevent saving multiple copies of the same add-in.


 

Press NO and then your add-in will then be added to the list (in alphabetical order).
Make sure that the check box is ticked and then press "OK".
