    Two problems, with a single, long document in Word 2003 (OS XP), which are probably related but they are driving me mad:

    1 - Every time I open this document, to which I am adding material constantly, it shows ALL the formatting and markup details. I immediately open the drop-down menu that allows me to change the view to "final", but every time I reopen it, it's back to "final showing mark-up". Trivial, I know, but when you have to open a document several times a day, it starts to get to you;

    2 - I use the first few paragraphs of this document as a template for emails to various organisations. Unfortunately, when I cut and paste these pars into an email, it pastes the entire document (about 70 pages). Is there a way of stopping this, or maybe just deleting the formatting/markup commands and starting again (I can't delete the file as it is too important). Help appreciated

    I have the same problem #1 as you do with a few documents. I hope somebody chimes in with a fix since it's quite annoying.
