    Documents created read only (Word 2007)

    Hello all loungers

    Has anybody encountered the following:

    Template based documents created as read only.

    Templates are located in a startup directory on a network location.

    It seems to only occur in word 2007 with .dotm.

    We do not see this with Word 2003 .dot in the same location.

    Confused I am.

    Do you have Network Magic from Pure Networks? There are some reports that this causes the behavior that you describe.

    Also check if you have add-ins active in Word 2007. If so, try to deactivate them to see if the problem disappears.
