How to set draft mode as the default in Word 2010

I like draft mode to be my default view in Word.  Just switched to Office 2010 (from 2003).  Default view is not draft mode.  How can I set draft mode as my default view.  Word 2007 instructions for this seem meaningless.

Thanks

Answer

To force all documents, both existing and new, to start in draft view (formerly called "Normal" view), you can use AutoOpen and AutoNew macros like those shown at the bottom of the page http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm and use the variation

With ActiveWindow.View
      .Type = wdNormalView

in both macros. Whether you use the other settings shown there is up to you.
