Hi,

I've recently installed the Word template for Multiterm 2014 SP2 - a really great way to add/edit terms easily.

But I also noticed that since then, every time I open an existing Word document, another empty document is also opened (i.e. 2 docs open - the wanted document and an extra empty one).

I proved this to myself by removing the MultiTerm11.dotx from the STARTUP folder - the problem disappears.

Thanks for any ideas, Doron

Few suggestions Feb 14, 2015

Hi Doron,

The first thing I would try is Start > Run > winword.exe /r. I have little faith that this will change anything, but it is worth a try.

If this doesn’t work, the problem is likely to stem from a corrupted template - Word's or MultiTerm's.

The easiest way to try and fix it is by recreating the template, hoping that this time nothing will get corrupted. Close all Office programs, Studio, and MultiTerm (and maker sure in the Tasks Manager no ghost instances are running), then do a global search for all Word's and Studio/MultiTerm templates. Move them from their current location to a backup folder, and then re-add them from the installation folder of the respective software (for Word you can just start Word and it will recreate the Normal.dot or Normal.dotm template).

This is explained in more details in KB #2086

Hope any of that will help

TOPIC STARTER
I hoped I left all this behind... Feb 14, 2015

Thanks, Shai, I really thought I left all this template-action behind with Studio.
It's really frustrating to having to start messing about with Word templates again at this stage.
I can't see how normal.dotx got corrupted by the installation of MultiTerm11.dotx - but who knows.
So I'll try to recreate it following your advice. See what happens.
Will we see you at the kenes next week?

Templates are a huge headache Feb 14, 2015

MS Office templates are a huge pain, especially when trying to integrate third-party functionality. I stopped trying to fiddle with them long ago, mainly for that reason.

That said, most template-related issues can be solved if you only have the time and patience to deal with them (over and over again. I wish I could tell you that solving the issue at hand means that it won't suddenly reappear one day for no apparent reason).

I don't know about next week yet. I have a little scheduling conflict, but I might come to a single day.
