working with templates
Working with Templates
  • A template is a master document with predefined page layout, fonts, margins, and styles that is used to create new documents that will share the same basic formatting.
  • Using templates keeps you from having to recreate documents such as interoffice memorandums, monthly newsletters that you share with employees, recordings of minutes from meetings, and more.
  • In Backstage, the New command allows you to work with templates that are already installed, search for a template online, open a blank template, or create your own template.

Working With Templates
  • You can choose from many different categories of templates, such as letters, memos, resumes, flyers, forms, and more.
  • Some templates are preinstalled with Word and there are more options available online.
  • Templates are reusable even if you saved the document with a different file name.
  • In the following exercise, you will locate an installed template.
