    I installed and have been using Wood 2010 for several months. This week I noticed that every time I tried to save a document it saved in Wordpad. People I work with are having a difficult time receiving the document formatted as I designed it. Please HELP. Thank you!

    Let me see if I understand your question correctly... When you save a Micosoft Word document, it converts the file to an .RTF filetype by default? If this is the case... perhaps Word is choosing .RTF filetype as the default filetype for saving your documents. In Microsoft Word 2010 go to File > Options > Click on the Save tab on the left > under Save Documents > Save Files In This Format: Insert The Default Filetype (Word Document (*.doxc).

    Let us know if that helps.
