Is anyone aware of a way of setting Office for Mac 2011 to automatically use the "remove personal information" option on every save?

The best way I can see of doing this is to modify or create a new blank template with the setting baked in.

  1. File -> New From Template -> Blank Document
  2. Make Privacy changes as before
  3. Save as Word Template (This will normally appear under my Templates, but I presume you could overwrite the existing Blank template, wherever it is located).
  4. Then when creating a new document, use the new template you created.
