5. Templates and Outlines > 50. Manage Macros with Templates

Manage Macros with Templates

By default, Word stores macros in the ubiquitous Normal template. This works fine in the short term, but macros you plan to keep and reuse should go in a separate template.

When you first start working with macros, those macros will be stored (with many of your other customizations) as part of Word’s default template, Normal.dot. Normal.dot is such an integral part of Word that if you delete or rename it, Word will create a new version of the template using default settings stored in the program itself.

Whenever you’re working in Word, you’re working with Normal.dot. Even if a particular document is based on another template, Normal.dot is still there, including any macros stored in it.
