"View File" macro not shown in Other Macros

I've used the View File macro many times in the past, but since upgrading to 4.2, it is no longer listed in the Other Macros popup. How do I get it to show up again?

The viewfile macros should be listed in Other Macros popup. Try to search for "view" and it should list down these macros. They are under "Confluence Content" category.

If the macros are not shown there, check if the module(s) are enabled. Go to Admin > Plugins > Show System Plugins > Office Connector Plugin. Make sure that this plugin is enabled, along with the modules of this plugin (i.e. viewfile, viewdoc, viewdoc-legacy,etc)

That plug-in was not enabled -- odd, but it is now. Thanks much!
