Opening a Blank Document and Creating an Envelope
Opening a Blank Document and Creating
When you create a new document, you can start with a new blank document, or you
can start with one that already contains formatting and generic text commonly used in a
variety of professional documents such as a fax cover sheet or a report. These
preformatted ﬁ les are called templates . You could use a template to create a formatted envelope,
but ﬁ rst you’ll learn how to create one on your own. You’ll work with templates in the
Case Problems at the end of this tutorial. To create an envelope on your own, you need
to start with a new, blank document.
To create a new document for the envelope:
1. Click the File tab to open Backstage view, and then click the New tab in the
navigation bar. The New tab displays a variety of template options. By default, the
Blank document is selected. A sample of the selected option (in this case, an empty
document) is displayed in the right pane of the New tab. The template options
in the Home section are stored on your computer. The options in the Office.com
Templates section are stored on the Office.com Web site, but are available to
download for free. As you can see in Figure 1-18, Microsoft offers predesigned templates
for all kinds of documents, including agendas, calendars, invoices, and letters.
