Using Templates

A template is a document that is partially shaped with text, style, or formatting. You can start a document with a template or wizard, and edit the formatting later. Word provides templates for letters, reports, press releases, brochures, and much more.

To use a template:

1.
If the Project Gallery isn't already open, choose File > Project Gallery (). The Project Gallery appears (Figure 4.1).

Figure 4.1. The Project Gallery offers a variety of different templates.


2.
In the Category menu on the left, click the triangle next to a category to expand it.

3.
Click the type of document you want in the list of subcategories.

The available choices appear in the pane on the right (Figure 4.2).

Figure 4.2. Select a category, and then select from the template choices on the right.


4.
Click one of the choices to select it, and click OK.

The preformatted document opens (Figure 4.3).

Fill in the content, and then save the document.
