I keep shuddering at the mistakes this man keeps making in this vital area
of Word knowledge.
#1: To get rid of built-in stuff, use Add/Remove Components from MS Office
then delete the instances. Sheesh. I have a batch file already made and
distributed widely that does this :-(
#2: Zipbackup can be replaced with a simple batch file itself :-(
#3: Blank is NOT added automatically. Word DOES auto-build a Normal.dot if
none is present. That file is renamed to BLANK in the DIALOG. Very
#4: Folders are ONLY added to the dialog IF they contain a valid file entry.
Eg, add a dir called HereticSux to your user templates dir but dont put any
templates in it. Does it show up as a tab? NOPE!
#5: As for free templates - havent yet seen one worth what I paid for it.
