Default Track changes on when template is opened

I have created a template it Word 2003. It contains paragraph styles
on which will be used on some of our documents. When I opened the
original document on which I've based the template, track changes was
turned on. I turned them off and carried on creating my template. I
saved the template with the track changes turned off but now every time
I open the template the track changes are on! Any ideas?

Default Track changes on when template is opened

Hi Jacqui

You may have to muck around a bit to get this setting to stick. But for a
start, try this:

1. Close Word and then re-open it.
2. Do File Open and open your template. That is, don't create a new
document from your template: you must open the .dot file.
3. Make sure track changes is off.
4. Make a minor change (eg spacebar then backspace).
5. Save the template.
6. Close Word and then re-open it.

Now, try to create a new document based on your template.

Hope this helps.

This works Shanua, thanks. The tracking is still on when I open the
template directly, as I am still adding things to it, but seems to be
fine when I open a doc based on it so that's the main thing. Thanks
for your help.

Hi Jacqui

When you've finished working on your template, make absolutely sure that
there are no un-accepted changes in the template and then turn off track
changes. Leaving un-accepted changes in a template can have some bizarre
results.

Hope this helps.
