Quickly Attach a Workgroup Template

It’s a rare corporate Word user who knows offhand the location of her Workgroup templates on the network. Word knows where they are, but try attaching one to an existing document, and you get a pop quiz on the subject! Reeducate Word with this hack.

In addition to templates stored locally, Word allows you to specify a location for document templates on a network, called the Workgroup templates folder. This feature is especially useful in a corporate environment, where multiple users may share the same set of templates.

When you specify a Workgroup templates location (select ToolsOptions and click the File Locations tab), Word kindly adds any appropriate tabs to the Templates dialog the next time you choose FileNew. But Workgroup templates aren’t as easily integrated into your routine when it comes to attaching them to existing documents.
