I'm hoping one of you has some wise advice. I am suddenly having trouble
working with my Word 2003 installation.
The only work around I've been able to find is to delete normal.dot
EVERY TIME before starting word.
I used to be able to have a custom template in the Word Startup
directory, can't get those to work at all and had to remove them.
When I start Word, if I do not delete Normal.dot, Word wants to start up
in safe mode. If I delete normal.dot, I can work OK, just open docs
based on my template (to get access to my macros etc)., and all works
fine until next time I try to open Word 2003.
Has anyone ever experienced this behavior? I also had to change my
default printer to Adobe PDF. I'm using a shared MAC printer via Bonjour
- and Word would not start at all even with deleting the normal.doc when
I had the Mac printer as the default one. So I'm having to make a PDF
and then print the PDF (which is not a problem, just a hassle).
If anyone has any ideas/suggestions, greatly appreciated. I'm currently
overseas, so there may be a delay in getting your answers.
