Why does the Document Properties Dialog not appear on Save As?



I have set the Save Option to 'Prompt for document properties', however when
I create a new document using 'Save As', the Document Properties dialog box
does not appear. This used to happen when I used Word 97 - I am now using
Word 2003.



In Word 2003 the prompt for doc properties only on the first save of a new
doc. From then on you're on your own.

Save As does not trigger the Properties dialog. I'm not sure whether this is
a true bug or "by design," but that's just the way Word works. Sorry. In
Word 2003, instead of using Save As, you do have the option to create a new
document based on an existing one; when you save that, you do get the
Properties dialog (because it is truly a new document, which must be named).
