I recently installed v4.0 (v184.108.40.206, to be exact) and, of course, all
the setup I finally accomplished in v3.4 is gone. My primary concern is
the default style, which has reverted to .79" (2 cm) margins as the
default. Being in the US, I'd rather have defaults of 1".
The help appears to be a bit behind the program, and I can't figure out
how to save any changes so when I open a new document I get my 1"
margins. Here's what I have done so far:
1. Change the margins, then save a new template named "Normal". This is
insufficient, as it doesn't become my default template.
2. Change the default page style, then re-save the "Normal" template.
Still no change.
3. Try to make this my default template. Help says go to File ...
Templates ... Organize, but File ... Templates doesn't exist.
4. Go to Customize and try to add Manage Templates to the File menu.
This appears in the Customize area, but never shows up in the menu even
after leaving the program and coming back (although it remains in
I'd guess I'm missing a step somewhere, but I can't find what it is.
