  • When a Patient report (Word document) is created, it inherits three things from its “wizard”template:
    • Styles – Font, Color
    • Content – Hard coded information, bookmark placement
    • Page settings – page numbers, margins

  • Thereafter, a template sits in the background (behind the curtain) and provides four things to a document:
    • Macros – Lab specified sequence that expands automatically on report.
    • AutoTexts – Word AutoTexts:) = 
    • Toolbars – Editing tool settings saved
    • keyboard shortcuts – F9 (save and exit)
