What does my Word Processing program
mean when it talks about the "Normal.dot" and should I accept changes
- Any time you open a word processing document,
it starts with certain features already preset. These features are the styles
and parameters that you like to use to prepare a written document. These settings
are stored by the word processor as a template, a predesigned document, known
as the "Normal" template. This is where the settings are stored to ensure
each document you create is consistent with your desires.
changes are made to this template, they effect every subsequent document you will
create. There are times when Word will record unintended commands to the "Normal.dot"
and then ask you if you would like to save these changes. The correct answer to
this question is "No!" That way the "Normal.dot" will stay
the way you set it and not effect your future documents.
