Word with macros opens in designer mode

I created a doc in Word 2007 which includes check boxes using Active X objects. When I re-open the doc, it always opens in Designer Mode. This isn't going to be much good to those I give the form to who need it to make entries, not design! :)

Can't find a work-around....

P.S. Wanted to attached file (.docm) but EE wouldn't let me attach a .docm file. :(
