    clear clipboard in normal.dot (2003)

    My normal.dot has 4 items on the clipboard. If I open the normal.dot (not a new document--the actual normal.dot) and clear the clipboard they go away. But new documents created from that normal still have the items on the clipboard. I tried saving the normal as a new template and they are still there. How do I make these go away? Thanks

    Have you tried opening Normal.dot (to edit it, not to create a new doc from it) clearing the clipboard then saving Normal.dot?

    Tes. I right clicked on it and selected open and verified that the file name at the top of the screen said normal.dot (not new document). I cleared the clipboard and closed the normal--they were still there when I opened the normal. So I opened the normal, cleared the clipboard and save the changes but they are still there in the normal and in any document created from the normal.

    Right. You didn't say before that you had actually saved it after clearing the clipboard. I'm not sure what to suggest, then, but hopefully someone else will come along with an idea before long.

    The clipboard is not a feature of Normal.dot. It is stored in your computer's memory. It should be cleared when you restart your PC.
