I have migrated a client from their previous DMS to SharePoint. None of their documents have Quick Parts or placeholders. They are simple, clean Word documents.
The client has developed a habit from their previous system whereby they would go to a previously written letter, open it in Word, then do file "Save As" and save a new copy of the letter and begin making the minor changes. The problem is that in SharePoint the newly saved file is also capturing the metadata from the original, including a unique identifier hidden field which is preventing them from saving.
Is there a setting within SharePoint that allows me to turn off the feature that copies metadata from the source file during the File "Save As" process?
