Can't save as template and fields macros missing

Hi,

 

I found this problem in a different post but it was for older versions and no suitable fix was proposed, so I'll start a new thread:

 

For some odd reason, Act! 2011 has stopped allowing me the option to save my files as .ADT files. In the past, I've started with an existing template, edited it to my liking, then saved it - Act did the rest, saving it to the correct template version. Now it just saves it as a Word document.

 

Also, the fields pop-up box is no longer available when editing the document. I've tried opening in the Word "add-ins" tab but that doesn't work.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks,

 

Dan

This is generally resolved by setting macro security to a low level rather than the default high level
