"Save as" dialogue box

"Save as" dialogue box

Post by Paul Goodm » Sun, 20 Jun 2004 04:27:28


In Word 2002 for XP Pro I have two questions...

Is there a way to make the "save as" dialogue box bigger? The box is rather
small and I don't seem to be able to "drag" it to become a larger size?

And when I use the same "save as" dialogue box, it naturally first opens up
to "my documents", but as I click the "save in" box to go to another
directory from time to time...there is a 10 second lag time for the next box
to pop up. And I can't figure out why? (I have a Pentium 4!!)

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Paul

Iceman,

My experiece was this was only a problem when opening files on my desktop
(Office2002) that had been created on my laptop (Office2000). I suppose if
it is unchecked in the template then new files created would be unchecked.
You can run this macro to turn it off on all files in a directory:

Public Sub BatchToggleEmbedSmartTabs()

'Sets embeded SmartTag off in all files in a directory
Dim myFile As String
Dim PathToUse As String
Dim myDoc As Document
'Close any documents that may be open
If Documents.Count > 0 Then
Documents.Close SaveChanges:=wdPromptToSaveChanges
End If
'Get the folder containing the files
With Dialogs(wdDialogCopyFile)
If .Display <> 0 Then
PathToUse = .Directory
Else
MsgBox "Cancelled by User"
Exit Sub
End If
End With

If Left(PathToUse, 1) = Chr(34) Then
PathToUse = Mid(PathToUse, 2, Len(PathToUse) - 2)
End If

myFile = Dir$(PathToUse & "*.*")

While myFile <> ""
'Open each file and toggle SmartTags
Set myDoc = Documents.Open(PathToUse & myFile)
With ActiveDocument
.EmbedSmartTags = False
End With
'Close the file, saving the changes.
myDoc.Close SaveChanges:=wdSaveChanges
myFile = Dir$()
Wend

End Sub

Word 2002 and above do allow you to resize the Open and Save dialog boxes.
Just drag as you would any window. You can also maximize them by
double-clicking on the title bar.
