Word 2010 beta: Cannot save my Normal.dotm file

    Using the Word 2010 beta on Win7. I cannot save my Normal.dotm file - at
    least not usefully. I can open the file, edit it, add macros to it, whatever,
    and it will save (in the folder directory, the .dotm file will show a change
    in file size). But when I close Word, or if I open a new document in Word, the
    Normal.dotm file is reset to the default, losing any changes I've made.

    I can save and use other .dotm templates; but not the default Normal.dotm
    template.
