In a document list my customer stores word document templates with appropriate file types
[.dot | .dotx | .dotm]. When a user access these documents, the familiar dialogue box opens with the question to open the document in Read Only or Check Out and Edit.
But my customer wants a different behavior. She wants the document opened as a new (macro enabled) document as if the word template were opened in Windows Explorer. The customer isn’t fond of using the ribbons “Open with Windows Explorer” option.
How do I change the behavior of the document list, to open document templates as new document?
