Creating Custom Templates

After you’re familiar with how templates work and how to use existing templates, you’re ready to start creating your own templates. In Word, you can create templates in three ways. You can base a template on an existing document, base a new template on an existing template, or create a template from scratch. The method you use should depend on the resources you have on hand, as follows:

  • Create a template based on a document You have a document that contains most or all of the settings you want to use in your template.

  • Create a template based on an existing template You have a template that contains many of the settings you want to use in your new template but you want to add or change a few settings without affecting the existing template.

  • Create a template from scratch You have no model to use as a starting point for your template.
