    2007 programs not saving settings (2007)

    I have just started using Office 2007 on a fewe pcs and I have noticed that unlike past versions(where if you made substantial changes to the normal.doc template and whatever the equivalent was in excel, it retained them for future docs), you can set new settings in the Word or Excel options under the Office symbol menu and they only take effect for that document. Open another and the setting reverts. What is going on here and does anyone have a fix? Whilst we are on the subject, has anyone found a way to disable the ribbon in favour of a 2003 style menu system where you can find what you want?

    1, I have not had issues with the changes being made to the normal.dot.

    2, You can NOT remove the "Ribbon" type and go back to the "Office classic" menu.

    There are a couple of third party Office addins that give you an option with the ribbon interface. See Replace Office 2007 Ribbon Interface with Office 2003 Style Classic Menus and Toolbar at Digital Inspiration for an overview & links.

    Those look good, I just may need to check them out.

    Has anyone found a "addin" to bring back the "Right Click" context menus for Office 2007?

    Thanks Joe,

    That looks really useful and I am giving them a go now. I'll let everyone know how it goes.
