Hi,It seems to me that whatever i seem to modify in Word 2007, for example; Font, Heading, Page layout, what ever view I choose it always reverts back to its original state when shutting down, even when I ok it at the time. How can I modify something which will permanently stay how I wish it to be without having to revert the way I wish it to be? Thanks for any help.
Hi, I have carried out your instructions following your link. Firstly changed Font from calibri to Times Roman, then changed size font from 11 to 12, I clicked top left hand office button, changed to save doc template, clicked save and came back to desktop. Opened up word 2007 and it reverted back to original settings of Calibri, and Font 11? What am I doing wrong?
The following works for Word 2010 and I believe it is the same for Word 2007. I use Windows XP
The template you saved should be available if you go to File/New/ My Templates.
To have your template as the default you require to make it the Normal template as follows.
All templates are stored at
C:\Documents and Settings*user*\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates. ser being your own account name.
Rename normal.dotm to normal.old or something similar which you can revert to in a disaster.
Then locate your stored template and rename it to normal.dotm
When you next open Word your document should be based on your new template.
Or you could do as I have done open word the change the font etc to what ever you want then save the blank document somewhere,I have a folder on my desktop with various templates and blank docs.I have one that is saved as Glenn headed, which has my address details already on the document, but it must be saved as something else once the document is written or I will not have the blank document to open another time.
