Creating a New Document from an Existing Document
If there’s a document format you use frequently—such as a meeting agenda, a report,
a memo, whatever—you can use an existing version of that document to create a
brand new one. For example, say it’s your job to create the agenda for the weekly
departmental meeting. Instead of starting from scratch each week, just use an agenda
you’ve already created as the basis for a new one. The format and some placeholder
text are already there; just fill in the new information—and save yourself a lot of
time. Here’s how:
1. ClickFile New(Alt,F,N).
Word opens the Available Templates pane.
2. Click“Newfromexisting”(keyboardshortcut:PressX).
The New from Existing Document dialog box opens, showing folders and
documents, as you can see in Figure 1-6.
