Word 2007 Normal.dotm


F

By default, the Word 2007 Noral.dotm adds a 10 pt spacing after each line. I
opened Normal.dotm and changed it to 0 pt then saved it. This solution works
if I open Word 2007 from the start menu, but if I create a new word document
from the context menu it still adds the 10 pt spacing. Does anyone know why?

I have also tried opening the paragraph menu and seting 0 pt single line
spacing as the default and also seting the Style -> No Spacing -> Set
Default, but neither seem to effect creating a new word document from the
context menu.

Hello Forrest

yes, this was a pretty odd behavior by Word 2007 out of the box: the
source for a new document created from Explorer was in fact some factory
defaults, and not Normal.dotm.

ISTR there was a manual fix somehow, but according to

http://download.microsoft.com/downl...A418F/2007 Office Service Pack 2 Changes.xlsx

(see row 631!)

this has been fixed by the SP2 for Office 2007.

[I have not tested this myself, but I don't have much use for documents
created on Normal.dotm _or_ factory defaults, anyway ... :)]

I think this is due to the way Word creates new documents when invoked from
the context menu - and I believe it has been fixed in SP2.
