[mso] Re: Word 2003

Anne,
My recently opened templates list is included in my recent files list.  Could 
you please explain exactly how you get to see a separate list of recently 
opened templates?  I can't find that anywhere.

In the Help for Word 2003 there is information on how to add new Tabs to the 
templates dialog box to point to templates in other folders.  It is under the 
Help item "about document template locations".  However, even it requires that 
your folders be in a specific location as defined as the User template folder.

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan
Thanks for this.  Unfortunately it doesn't help as I have a couple of
bespoke template folders that have to reside elsewhere on the har drive in
order for the docs to load properly.  In any event I have "moved" my
templates folder to My Docs as it makes it quicker to navigate back - but
whatever I do with the file location for the templates it still doesn't
increase the no of previously used templates that show up.  It seems as if
Word 2003 doesn't have any other option but the last 4 templates!
