Saving Page Setup Defaults to the Current Template
After establishing the page settings the way you want them in your document, you can
save the specifications as your default settings in the document’s template (for a more
indepth look at working with templates, see Chapter 4). When you save page setup settings
as your default, Word saves the settings to the current template. If your document isn’t
based on a custom template, the changes are applied to the Normal template (by default,
all new Word documents use the Normal template if they aren’t based on another
template). When you create default page setup settings, they will be applied to all new
documents that are created based on the template you are currently using.
To save your settings as the default, follow these steps:
1. Click to place the insertion point at the place in the document where you want to
make the changes.
2. Open the Page Setup dialog box by clicking the dialog launcher in the Page Setup
group.
3. Specify the margin and page changes you want to make.
In the lower-left corner of the Page Setup dialog box, click Set As Default.
A message box, as shown in Figure 5-10, asks whether you’d like to change the
default settings in the current template and indicates which template you are
updating. To apply the page settings to the current template, click Yes. If you decide not to
alter the template settings, click No.
