Default Templates open in "Normal View" not "Print View"

I have some Hotdocs Templates that I have developed. Some of them open in
"Normal View" and not "Print View." This happens even though I've saved the
templates in Print View. Other templates open in "Print view" as expected.

How can I control how templates will open?

Also I should add I'm using Word 2000 and Hotdocs 6.

Futhermore it also seems I cannot set the zoom. A template that's saved to
be 100% percent keeps opening at 150%. How do I set this?

Well, OK, thanks. Apparently I have to type a space or something and then
save the template file with the view and zoom I want. Then if I open the dot
file or make a doc from it, using Word, I get the right view and zoom.

But if I create a doc from Hotdocs, using the same templates, I don't get
the right view, but I do get the right zoom. So I guess there's some bug in
Hotdocs.

Some of the templates are opening in normal view and some in web view. It
drives me crazy.

It's not that I care, but all these lawyers think the formatting broke when
they see documents in 'normal view.'

You can force any view with auto macros in the document template - The
following will set it to print view and 100% zoom. Add the macros to the
normal template and the settings will apply to all documents regardless of
what the document thinks it should be

Change the 100 to any preferred zoom level. If you want normal rather than
print layout view swap the apostrophe from the beginning of the line where
indicated to the other.

See http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm for more information and
installation instructions

Sub AutoNew()
With ActiveWindow.View
.Type = wdPrintView
.Zoom.Percentage = 100
End With
End Sub

Sub AutoOpen()
ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveDocument.FullName
With ActiveWindow.View
.Type = wdPrintView
.Zoom.Percentage = 100
End With
End Sub
