Word "Save As" problem

By ranchhand ·
Originally, Word would use the first few words of a document as the default Save As title. Now it uses a fixed string which I have to change for each Save As. I can temporarily change this fixed default title for each document in File >> Properties >> Summary >> Title but each new document has that same fixed title. How do I make Word Save As title behave as it did "out of the box".

I'm not sure that this will work but, try deleting the file.

Good clue, thanks.

It isn't necessary to delete the file. I opened the file in Word. Then in File >> Properties >> Summary I found and deleted that default file name. Now, the Save As dialog behaves as it did "out of the box". Thanks for helping me eliminate this nuisance.
