Have templates changed in Word 2007?



Our office has recently upgraded to Office 2007. Previously when opening a
template (in 2003) it would open and be named as, for example "Document1"
rather than the name of the template. So it would be opening a clean copy of
the template rather than the template itself.

Now in 2007, our Word templates seem to open either as a read only versions
of the template or the template itself.

How can I get our templates to behave as they did in 2003? Thank you

When you "open" a template, you're opening it for editing. To create a new
document based on the template, you need the New command. Do you have the
templates in the correct folder to be accessed by Office Button | New?
