Using a personal template
When you specify a default location for personal templates or download or create and save
a template, the New screen has two categories below the suggested searches: Featured and
Personal (or Custom). Personal appears if you have not speciﬁ ed a Workgroup Templates
location (covered later in this chapter), and Custom appears instead if you have done so.
You can click Personal or Custom to see the locations that hold your own personal
templates and themes. The Document Themes folder appears here (you’fill learn more about it
in Chapter 22, “Working with Layouts, Themes, and Masters”) and also whatever folder you
speciﬁ ed as the default personal templates location (see the preceding note). In addition, if
you have speciﬁ ed a Workgroup Templates location, that folder appears here too.

4. Click the desired personal template. A new presentation opens based on that
