I've noticed this since installing Office 2010. The text for the shortcuts in the Save dialog in Office 2010 is white. When an item is highlighted (mouse-over) or selected (clicked), the text goes black. This behavior does not occur in any other Save dialog on the system, including Office 2003 (the previous version we've been running).
Also, in Office 2003 I added several additional shortcuts to network drives and common directories. These do not show in the Office 2010 dialogs. I assume this is partially because Office 2010 decides to introduce yet another Save Dialog (which doesn't, by the way, offer anything more than the 2003 dialog offered).
While I recognize I'll probably have to recreate the shortcuts I'd added, I'd like the deployment to run as seamlessly as possible with as much carry-over from the previous versions installed on the users desktops. Is there a way to have Office 2010 carry over any added shortcuts as it installs, or reference the shortcuts from Office 2003?
UPDATE: The solutions proposed so far have not turned out to be the issue. I have searched a bit online and have not yet found anybody reporting similar issues. Visual Studio Express apps are also showing some issues that, while not the same, may be related.
Text in menus in the VSExpress apps randomly changes, especially the first letters of the menu items, and especially as I mouse over or make selections. Sometimes the menu label text disappears altogether.
I have updated the video drivers on the system and that has not made a difference. Office 2010 has been deployed to 75 users around the office and nobody else has experienced similar issues.
I have completely removed Office 2010 and 2003 using the RevoUninstaller to remove all registry and file traces, and reinstalled the apps, and the issue persists.
