A very basic problem which i have not been able to solve: 1. How do I create a new normal.dotm or modify the existing one so it becomes the new normal.dotm in Word for Mac 2011 running Lion? 2. How do i create a custom theme to go with the template? I've checked everything I could find on Google and nothing becomes permanent. I tried making modifications to a new blank document, then saving as a dotx and it opens with the modifications, But then, when I open another new document it is the old normal. I also tried saving it as macro-enable .dotm file in My Templates. Taht didn't eork either. When i open Word it still loads the old .dotm. I have no idea where it's coming from.
