Starting a new document with a template
Choosing a template in Ofﬁ ce 2010
To pick a template in Ofﬁ ce 2010, you need to start by going backstage (click the File
tab, as you did to save your work in the project in Chapter 1). From the menu, select
New, and you’ll see a number of templates at your disposal, as shown in Figure 2.1.
You would usually start a new ﬁ le by choosing Blank Document. Word opens a
new blank document automatically when you start the program, as you know, but
you can work on multiple new documents in the same session. Word will let you
have lots of documents open at once – certainly many more than your brain can
cope with working on at once!
This time, we’re not going to start a blank document. We’re going to pick something
with more sizzle. Click the More categories folder, and you’ll see a number of
folders. If you click to go into any of these, you can preview the templates in there.
