Chapter 8. Special Word Techniques > Saving a Document as a Template

Saving a Document as a Template

Templates contain entire document designs and can even include portions of text. When you start a new document, you can choose from among the many preformatted templates that come with Word, including templates for popular business and professional documents. If none of these templates suits your needs, you can modify an existing template or save your own document design as a new template and then use it to create new documents.

To save a document as a template:

1.
Create a sample document and format it by creating and applying a set of styles.

2.
Delete any text that you do not want saved as part of the template. For example, to save only the styles and page formatting, delete all the text.

3.
From the File menu, choose Save As.

4.
From the Save File as Type pull-down list, choose Document Template (Figure 8.16).

Figure 8.16. Choose Document Template from the Save As Type pull-down list.


5.
Type a name for the template in the File Name text box and specify where you want to save the template.

6.
Click Save.
