Default Read-only property in a document created from a template

Whenever I 'save as' an new document created froma template the new document
always alerts me to the read-only attribute of the template when I open the
new document. The alert doen't seem to have anything to do with the *.doc
file. How can I turn this off? It is confusing less expericenced staff as
they think they are editing the template and not the docuemtn created from
the template.

Hi =?Utf-8?B?c2hhZmZlcjAwMQ==?=,

Whenever I 'save as' an new document created froma template the new document
always alerts me to the read-only attribute of the template when I open the
new document. The alert doen't seem to have anything to do with the *.doc
file. How can I turn this off? It is confusing less expericenced staff as

the template.

The only possibility would be to link the document to a different template.
Since a document is linked to a template's toolbars, macros, keyboard shortcuts
and AutoText, it's theoretically possible to alter a template through working
in a document attached to it.
