I use this command on an almost daily basis and am puzzled why MS would think it out to be removed. Going via the File > New > Local templates route is keystroke- and time-consuming, so MS should provide at least a single-keystroke alternative. Going to the bundled templates, which are almost useless to users like me, is a royal PITA.
Further, if MS is going to disable a command, they should do it in a manner that at least doesn’t crash the program if it gets invoked! 😵 A notice to the effect of “this command no longer supported as of [date/version]” would have been nice too, since I wasted hours poking around trying to figure out why using a old and trustworthy command was crashing Word! 🤬James Lockhart supported this idea ·
