    Hello everyone. I am currently running OSX Snow Leopard. I was using Neo Office for my word processing needs.Ii got a real good deal on Office 2011 from work and couldn't pass it up. I am really happy with it.

    Anyways, there is one thing I would like to change, but I am not quite sure. I changed the file associations so that all my documents will open with Office/Word. The only thing is, how can I get my document icons (.doc files, etc.) to have the updated office "look"? Right now they are just the generic white paper icons with .doc written on it. Were they supposed to update, or am I making this up?

    Thanks for your help.

    Perhaps if you open them, re-save them as .docx....not sure that will work, but maybe...since .doc is 2003 and earlier.
