After you’ve finished tailoring the theme settings to reflect your particular style, you can
save the theme so it is accessible through the Themes gallery in the Themes group of the
Page Layout tab.
Begin by displaying a document that contains all of the settings that you want to use in
your new theme. On the Page Layout tab, click the Themes button in the Themes group.
Scroll down to the bottom of the Themes gallery and choose Save Current Theme. The Save
Current Theme dialog box appears.
Type a descriptive name for the theme and click Save. The new theme is now available
when you click Themes in the Themes group.
Caution !
Because Word 2010 looks in a specific folder to find the Themes for your documents,
it’s important that you leave the default folder (Document Themes) selected when
you save your theme. Otherwise, the theme will not be displayed in the Themes list by
default, and you will need to use Browse For Themes (also in the Themes list) to find
your customized theme.
What’s Next?
This chapter introduced two key Word 2010 features that help you coordinate and apply
various design elements in your files. You can use Word templates to quickly create
professional documents based on existing document settings and use global templates to
share functionality among the documents you create. You also learned how themes enable
you to apply a consistent look—with specific colors, fonts, and effects—throughout your
document and enable you to switch it all out easily if you decide later to choose a
different theme. The next chapter helps you put all this design wisdom in the context of your
page design by showing you how to control page setup and pagination in your Word 2010
