Using a Personal Template
When you specify a default location for personal templates, the New screen has two catego-
ries below the suggested searches: Featured and Personal (or Custom). Personal appears if
you have not speciﬁ ed a Workgroup Templates location (covered later in this chapter), and
Custom appears instead of you have done so.
You can click Personal or Custom to see the locations that hold your own personal tem-
plates and themes. The Document Themes folder appears here (you’ll learn more about it
in Chapter 4, “Working with Layouts, Themes, and Masters”) and also whatever folder you
speciﬁ ed as the default personal templates location (see the preceding note). In addition, if
you have speciﬁ ed a Workgroup Templates location, that folder appears here too.
To access your personal templates, follow these steps:
1. Choose File
2. Click Personal or click Custom. An icon appears for the location you have deﬁ ned
as your personal template folder as well as an icon for Document Themes. There may
also be a Workgroup Templates folder shown. See Figure 2.4.
Choose Personal or Custom to see your personal template location.
Click Custom (or Personal,
depending on which appears)
