Chapter 1. Essential Office Techniques > Using the Project Gallery

Using the Project Gallery

A feature introduced in Office 2001 called the Project Gallery gives you access to standard blank documents, as well as to templates and wizards that provide a substantial amount of document formatting and content. In Office 2004, the Project Gallery has been expanded to make it easy for you to open documents on which you've recently worked, current projects, and sample Office documents.

To use the Project Gallery

1.
Do one of the following:

  • Launch an Office application. (If the Project Gallery hasn't been disabled, it opens on program launch.)

  • Choose File > Project Gallery (or press ).

The Project Gallery opens.

2.
Do one of the following:

  • To create a new document for this or another Office application (regardless of whether it is currently running), click the New tab (Figure 1.4). Select Blank Documents from the Groups list, select a document type from the ones displayed on the right, and click Open.

    Figure 1.4. To create a new document, select Blank Document and the icon for the type of document you want to create.


  • To create a document from a template or wizard, click the New tab (see Figure 1.4), select My Templates or another template or wizard category from the Groups list, select a template or wizard from the ones displayed on the right, and click Open.

  • To open a document on which you recently worked, click the Recent tab (Figure 1.5). Select a time period from the Date pane, select a document from the ones listed, and click Open.
