Redirect Publisher 2007 to home drive
We're getting pupils saving publisher files to the local userprofile not their home directory. This is despite having access to drive C: blocked, and every policy I can find redirecting documents to drive y: (home dir). This is particularly on 2008 TS, and Vista. I've managed to set the default save location in Word, excel and powerpoint and set the office policies to only allow access to y: and j: (general drive) but can't find an option for Publisher.....
Hoping someone can help!
edit - Apparently you can't do this with publisher 2007 :-(

How to customize the My Places bar in both the Open and the Save As dialog boxes in Office
You can add stuff to the My Places bar... I think Publisher is stupid though... Publisher 2003 was crap at printing, 2007 is crap at saving...
I don't think you can do it in Outlook 2007 either...

Does My Documents folder redirection not work as I was sure that Publisher 2007 defaulted to there. I usually redirect My Docs to the UNC path rather than a mapped drive as I find this much more reliable.

Have you had a look at the Office ADM templates for group policy, I have got a feeling there may be something in there, but correct me if I am wrong.

Joe, did you ever manage to fix this as this is something that has been causing a lot of trouble for us recently and couldnt figure a way to resolve it?
