Computers are powerful, but they still need to be told what to do—no matter how automated a task might seem. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that whenever you create a new document in Word, your document is based on a template that provides default document creation settings. Templates are available locally on your computer as well as online, and they serve as patterns for documents: they define styles, AutoText entries, toolbars, standard (or boilerplate) text, placeholder text, and so forth. You can control how documents and templates interact in a number of ways. For example, you can base documents on existing templates, create custom templates for new and existing documents, attach templates to documents, load global templates, and edit templates.
