I have a Word 2007 template for papers I have to write up for school. It only contains the title page and the proper standard settings for all the quick markups.
On the title page I have things like "subject", "date", "course", "teacher" etc written in plain text and I replace those when I create a new document based on that template.
I don't know if doing it that way rather than using some kind of input field is the cause for it, but Word keeps asking me if I want to save changes to the template on the following occasions:
- Merely opening the template file and trying to close Word. Not a single thing changed!
- Random times when saving documents based on it, even though nothing at all has changed in the template itself. The dialog is different from the one above, I only get OK and cancel buttons. and there is also a "get help" button.
- Sometimes the same dialog as in the first point (with the exclamation mark) at random times when saving.
Have I done anything wrong? What causes Word to always ask this? I've checked if the .dotx file was read-only but it isn't...
This is about Word 2007 enterprise after a fresh install and all the latest updates / Service Pack, no plugins or external stuff.
