Adjusting .doc file extensions for Template Issues

Adjusting .doc file extensions for Template Issues

Sometimes templates (ALT-M) won't open in EditScript and instead open in a separate Microsoft Word window. This is usually due to an issue where Windows doesn't have the correct information set up for the Microsoft Word .doc file extension. In order to fix this try the following:

First make sure that you are signed out of Editscript MT. 

Open up any folder and choose the folder options from the Tools menu.

Select the File Types tab and scroll down to the DOC extension.  Highlight the DOC extension and click on the Advanced button.

Make sure that Browse in same window is checked.

You should now be able to log back into EditScript and use templates without any problems.
