Open document

Using Word 2002 in XP

When I open Word it opens a blank document 1 - which is normal.

When I then click on "File/Open.." and click on one of my saved documents,
the new document opens as a 2nd window leaving "Document 1" open. This is a
new behavior. I am not sure what I changed, but I think I recall the saved
document replacing the unused Document 1 instead of opening a 2nd window.
How do I get back to that earlier behavior?

Thanks.

Jeff,
Go to Tools - options - on the view tab remove the check next to windows on
taskbar, top item in column three of the view section.

This will mask but not, I think, change the behavior, which *is* anomalous.
I have to type a space into Document1 to keep it open all day; otherwise it
would be closed whenever I open an existing document (though not necessarily
when I create a new one).

It seems to have started aft6er I switched on to viewing the Document Map.
Could that be responsible?

I figured out what causes it. Because the anomalous behavior only started
happening when I started using Document Map, I tried an experiment:

1. I open a document, click on View Document Map, and close Word (without
saving).

2. Now, if I reopen Word, it opens with a blank document (and Document Map),
and when I click to open another document, it opens the second one in an
other window.

3. If I close document map before closing, that wierd behavior does not
happen.

Maybe it is a bug associated with Document Map in my 2002.

Anything is possible. Try switching the DM off and see if that makes any
difference.

It did. That was the cause.
