Working with Global Templates
Figure 4-4 Select the Automatically Update Document Styles check box to apply styles
automatically in your document.
If you configure Word to automatically update styles, keep in mind that the document
text must be formatted with styles that have the same style names as those included in the
newly attached template. If the style names are the same, Word will update the text
formatting to match the newly attached template’s style formats. If the document’s style names
are different from the attached template’s style names, you’ll need to select and replace
instances of each style. If you find that you’re faced with changing styles manually, consider
using the Select All Instances feature in the Styles And Formatting task pane to choose
all instances of an “old” style and then click the new style name in the Styles task pane to
replace the styles all at once.
For more information about changing all instances of a style, see Chapter 12.
Working with Global Templates
Up to this point, we’ve explored ways to create and attach document templates. In
addition to the document-specific templates you use to control the formatting and function of
individual files, you may in some cases need to work with the global templates Word uses
to provide information to your documents. All documents have access to the Normal and
Building Blocks global templates, which control features including macros, keyboard
shortcuts, and building blocks; these templates are loaded automatically by Word. The main
difference between global and document templates is that global templates contain
functionality that affects all files you create in Word (for example, macros or keyboard shortcuts
you want to be available anytime you use the program) and document templates contain
formatting and layout choices that are unique to one or more specific documents.
