I'd like to know if one can change some of Word2007's default settings and save them in the form of a blank document. I now have a doc formatted for margins, font, point size, line spacing, and printing characteristics. OK so far. But I cannot figure out how to also "lock in" to my black document different paragraph spacing (less than MSW default), and paste special (it always goes back to HTML) -- it seems to always default back on these two items, even though I've saved the doc. Am I missing something regarding templates? I'd think what I'm trying to do is possible, but I don't know how. Thanks.
