Managing project tasks in email is unproductive. So I figured out how to convert or export my Outlook email message to MS Word.
I just installed Adobe Creative Suite 4 (CS4) Web Premium edition.
All was great until I tried to open up a Word 2003 document. I couldn’t. The only way to open up the file was to drag the file onto the Word icon.
Turns out I was also unable to use my mouse to create or edit an email in Outlook 2003. The keyboard was my only friend. I’m using Word as my email editor and I kept getting the error message:
Do you want to save the changes to: PDFMCustom.dot
Putting two and two together, I realized it must have been the CS4 install. It was and it changed or messed with my Windows registry settings.
I searched high and low on Google and found the answer on Adobe’s forum explaining the fix:
- Edit Registry
- Change the LoadBehavior value from 3 to 2
Whew! Thanks Google and thank you itmastera.
