I have a large problem in sharing a Word template (more precisely; the rendered document from the template) between Windows (Word 2010) and Mac (Word 2010) users on a network.
In my test environment I have a *Win x64 7 computer with Word 2010 *Mac computer with Word 2011 *a shared network drive with my template file
My Word 2010 configuration: File > Options > Advanced > General | File Locations... > Workgroup templates > Modify > "\AF-02004\Users\PublicWordTemplate" (a network shared folder):
My Word 2011 configuration: Word > Preferences > File Locations > Workgroup templates > Modify > "Users:Public:WordTemplate"
Problem: When i create a document in Word 2011 based on my common work group template (from the shared network drive) and take a copy of that document (.docx) to my Windows computer and open it in Word 2010, i have full access to all my macros.
When I edit the document in Word 2010 (Windows), save it, and take the document (.docx) back to Word 2011, there are no macro functionality any more! I can also see that the Document template folder has been changed!
That's not the folder I initially adressed...
