Making Word Document ALWAYS open at 100%


U

Hi Guys and Girls

One of the users are complaining that Word documents don't always open at
100%,They are opening at strange percentages 144%,214% etc.

Using the Veiw>zoom tabs indicate it is set to open at 100% but this is not
the case.
(even after saving the doc)
Is there something I'm missing?

Thanks for your time.

Hi James

Word 2007 will always -

a) Open a new document at whatever % you last saved a new document at

b) Open an existing document at whatever % when it was last saved.

Is this what your users are experiencing?

Hi James

Thanks for your response

Even after saving the Doc's they still seem to open up at anything other
than 100%

does "Save" and "Save as", do two different Jobs, apart from allow re-naming?

I'm asumming the Zoom pecentage is set at whatever the creator of the Doc
had set it at?

Thanks again.

For the View magnification setting to be saved an edit needs to be registered
by Word. Try adding a space, change magnification, then save, then delete the
new space, then save again. This should now have saved the viewing
magnification.
Also, to change the default viewing, find the Normal.dot and/or any other
template you use, use File Open (not file double click) to open the actual
template and do the necessary as above.
Hope this helps

Hi Dean

Thanks for your response.

I will give that a try, Hopefully that will do the trick.

Is there are difference in double clicking the Doc to open it or using
File>open?

I read somewhere that double clicking it just opens a copy,is that correct?

Thanks

With documents, double clicking does not open a copy, but the document it self.
With Templates, double clciking opens a document based on that template, not
the template itself, so if you want to change the template and any of its
settings you must use File Open (or in Windows Explorer, right click, Open).
Hope this clears the confusion.
