"Save as .." always in background

Wed Feb 19, 2014 5:11 pm

Used with Word 2010 in Win 7 x64:

Using the "Print to PDF" command always show the "save as ... - Dialogue" in the foreground - that's fine.
But using the Word-Addin the dialogue always loses its focus and goes to the background - maybe the refreshing of Word after the PDF-command steals the focus from the "save as - dialogue"?

Anyone else who can confirm?

We solved it this way:

In Windows 7 registry :
Change the value of ForegroundLockTimeOut in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
from its default value (decimal 200 000) into the new value 0 (zero).
After that : restart the pc.

Let us know if this also works for you ...

There are a few threads about this problem in the actual forum about the "MS Office Addin", like these ones:

Hi guys,

Thanks for the suggestion Willy!

Peter - are you using Version 4 or Version 5 of the Add-in? If so, what build?

Cheers,

Are you sure there are no side effects on the behaviour of other software?

Hi Peter,

Here is what this registry entry does:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/libr ... 57208.aspx

And you can test changing that and if not happy you can always revert it to the default value of 200 000.

Best,
Stefan
