    Office Customisation

    We are currently using a pretty standard MSI image of Office 2003 that is working well. The problem is there are some niggly problems I have been asked to sort out. These are things like the turning off the Drawing Canvas. I have tried an MST anda CMW file but to no avail. Even tried tracking down a registry fragment! Are there any pitfalls I may be hitting or are options like there not able to be changed as they are User specific? Any one managed it?

    Re: Office Customisation

    The settings in the .ADMs can be set up in the transforms in Office2003. Can't remember if it was exactly there - I did it when setting up an install point recently. I thought it was much better than adding ADMs to to group policies - although it isn't as flexible if you want diferent setups for teachers and pupils for example - but for me I want everyone to have the same.

    I tried using transforms original but as the options are User specific I think they were being lost when a user logged on to different workstations.
    Ta Dos_Box, found the site but just to add an interesting slant the Word ADM kills the RM console. Fun, but at least I've looked in the ADM and got the registry setting so I can set that up until I work around that problem.
    About to test but intial reports are good.
