Sorry guys, but this is a required behaviour for any "document-centric"
application on the Mac. The fact that it is the same on the PC makes no
difference: on the Mac, Microsoft does not make the rules, and the rules
require that when you click the icon in the doc, "document-centric"
applications must start with a blank document.
However, if you immediately open a new document without making any change to
the blank, it WILL go away.
If you leave the blank open long enough to fire the AutoRecover, it will
stay. Or if you have any kind of active field in your template which
updates on open, the new blank will stay.
Hope this helps
