Creating and Managing Templates
After you modify a style, all paragraphs or text to which the style was
assigned are instantly changed. You don’t have to go back and reformat text
and paragraphs throughout your document.
Creating and Managing Templates
As I explain at the start of this chapter, every document you create is
fashioned from a template . The purpose of a template is to store styles for
documents. In the act of creating a document, you choose a template, and
the styles on the template become available to you when you work on your
document (Chapter 1 of this mini-book explains how to choose a template
when you create a new document).

Ctrl+N, you create a document with the Blank Document template, a
relatively simple template with few styles. When you create a document with
a template from or a template from Features tab in the New
window, more styles are available to you because these templates are more
To save time formatting your documents, you are invited to create templates
with styles that you know and love. You can create a new template on your
own or create a template by assembling styles from other templates and
documents. Styles in templates, like styles in documents, can be modified,
deleted, and renamed.
To create a document from a template you created yourself, open the New
window (on the File tab, choose New), click the Personal tab, and select your
template (see Chapter 1 of this mini-book for details).
Creating a new template
How do you want to create a new template? You can do it on your own or
assemble styles from other templates. Read on.
Creating a template on your own
One way to create a template is to start by opening a document with many
or all the styles you know and love. When you save this document as a
template, you pass along the styles in the document to the template, and
you save yourself the trouble of creating styles for the template after you
create it.
