I use Word 2003 to edit messages in Outlook and recently, every time I press the backspace key, it understands that I want to close the document - and the message "Desea guardar los cambios efectuados en "..."?
Does anyone out there know the solution to this problem?
I'd prefer not to choose not to use Word to edit messages as I like having the spell check.
Thanks in advance. Sarah.

Wordfast? May 16, 2004

I see in your profile you use Wordfast. Wordfast might be causing your problem. The only solution would be using the Outlook editor for your e-mail.

Kind regards,
Gerard

Wordfast, word and outlook May 16, 2004

I've switched off the wordfast toolbar but it still comes up with the save message when I press the backspace.
I want to continue using the word option for outlook because of the spellcheck. It used to work properly. I don't understand why it recently started working strangely.

Thanks Gerard - I've found the solution. It seems to have been a macro created by Wordfast. I've now installed a newer version of Wordfast and the problem has been solved.
