Default Word 2003 - Re - Toolbar Drawing / Snap To Grid

Word 2003


Windows 7 Home Premium


I prefer Snap Objects To Grid disabled.
So I Uncheck (Blank) the box in the Drawing Grid dialog.


When I open another session of Word 2003, the default returns to a Checked Snap Objects To Grid box .


How do I permanently disable "Snap Objects To Grid" for all Word 2003 sessions, unless I choose ?

Here is a macro:
Code:
Sub SnapToGridOff()
'
' SnapToGridOff Macro
' Turns Snap to Grid off
'
    Application.Options.SnaptoGrid = False
End Sub

Run the macro and then close and reopen Word.
Does the setting stick?


If not, rename the macro AutoExec and put it in your normal.dot template.

I created the macro and saved it as normal dot template.
C:\Users\Me\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

I named it SnapToGidOff as suggested.
All seems to work fine.

Thanks for the link too.
