    Post Forcing a custom normal.dotm for all users on a server 2003 network

    I need to force all users' normal.dotm doc to be "arial size 12" instead of the new calibri.

    all that ive been able to find so far is that i would have to replace each normal.dotm locally.

    is there a way of redirecting to a central location or of changing the font and size pre install

    Help please

    Office:2007
    OS: winxp
    Server:2003 smb

    Do you have any Server2008 Domain Controllers? you could use Group policy preferences to force the custom file out to their local profile location!
