    Swap New Document Task Pane for Old Dialog Box? (2002/SP2)

    How can I change File | New in Word 2002 to work as it did in previous versions and automatically display the Templates dialog box with the most recently selected tab already selected? I use the Workgroup Templates function everyday and I never use any of the options in the New Document Task Pane (except to click the General Templates option to work around this "new and improved" behavior). As it is, I have to click far too many times to launch the Templates dialog box.

    Thanks,
    Ray

    Create a macro named FileNew in your Normal.dot or in another global template that invokes the dialog:

    Sub FileNew()
    Dialogs(wdDialogFileNew).Show
    End Sub

    This macro will override the built-in File | New command.
