Windows 7: Dafault New Document Word 2007

16 Feb 2011   #1

 
Dafault New Document Word 2007

I want to change the default margins in normal.dotm but can't find any help for Word 2007 running in Windows 7.

As I recall, it is essential to work on normal.dotm so I need to know how to open it to change it.

I should add, it is not the same as either XP or Vista.

Can anyone help, please?

TIA for any input.

Ed

Hey, my friends. Surely my question was not that vague! I have no trouble changing margins...

I want to change the margins in normal.dotm in Word 2007 running in Windows 7. That is the page that opens every time you launch Word.

Ok, now I understand - I think!
I now recall having the same problem some time ago...

If you right-click the tile called "Normal" in the Styles tab, then modify to whatever you prefer and save it.

Is this what you mean. Make sure you set it as default.

whs - Yes, sir. Exactly what I mean. I have to admit being a bit embarrassed after seeing how simple it is...!! Thanks a million.

Thanks, Irene, but your suggestion was not quite what I was looking for.
