Using Wizards

Some of Word's templates are a special kind of template called a Wizard. Whereas a standard template is a static combination of text and formatting, a Wizard is an active tool that asks you questions about the document you want to create, and then uses your answers to create the new document. When you're starting a new document, you can recognize a Wizard in the New dialog box by its title and the small "magic wand" in its icon. You can see a Wizard template icon in Figure 2.1.

Each Wizard is unique, but they all follow the same basic procedures. There are a number of steps in a Wizard; each step asks you for certain information about the document you want to create. Figure 2.2 shows an example; this is a step in the Fax Wizard. Table 2.1 describes the different components of the Wizard dialog box.
