  • word 2003 disable print layout

    Hi - I have a user who only likes to view word documents in "normal" view. I set word to default to normal view when opening files on hard drive or file server. However when he gets an email with a word attachment it usually opens in print layout. Is it possible to disable print layout?. I have searched internet and found that reading layout can be disable in Tool > Options menu but from what I found it does not seem that print layout can be disabled.

    Thanks

    If you are using Office 2003, go to tools -> General and untick 'allow starting in reading layout'. This will stop it opening from outlook/email in reading layout.

      But the OP is referring to print layout

      I think this is a job for a macro -- either AutoOpen or AutoExec (see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/286310 for differences) that enforces the layout

      Creating it is easy enough -- record a macro switching to normal view, then put it in normal.dot with the correct name
