Re: old interface, old file format



You can set the old format as the default in Office button | Word Options,
Save category. Just choose "Word 97-2003 Document (*.doc)" for "Save files
in this format."

For your second question, see

Is there any way to setup Word2007 to have the old user interface?
Is there any way to set the file save to automatically defualt to the
older
format?

Using this interface is kind of like buying a new GM car and jumping in
only
to find that GM decided to mount the shifter in the middle of the drivers
seat.
