I am using Word for Mac 2011 (Version 14.1.2) and I would like it to default open files in draft view as opposed to print view. It is not obvious to me what settings to change to get this result.

The views are not set global, but per document. If you open the document and save it in draft view, it will reopen in draft view. Also, once you selected draft on new document, word seems to default to that for new docs on startup.

You can find a whole thread on the topic here:
