Word 2007 new docu,emt template

  raydawson 11:16 25 May 2007

I've installed Office 2007 but have one query about templates in Word 2007.

I have set up my normal.docx and normal.docm and my settings appear when I open a new document by opening Word 2007 itself, or by selecting a New Blank Document from Word's file menu. Fine, no problem.

However, if I create a 'New Microsoft Office Word Document' by right clicking in a folder, the document created has the original default Word 2007 template and not my customised normal.docx.

Any ideas on what I may have done wrong, or is it a glitch in Word 2007?

Are there any MS Office forums that may know the answer?

Thanks Vog - the same question had been posted there, but there appears to be no reason for it happening. In all previous versions of Word, opening a new document via the context menu in a folder window always opens it with the user default settings. But, not with Word 2007 which uses the built in defaults.
