Word 2010 Custom Template Change Location Help

Q: Word 2010 Custom Template Change Location Help

Ok, so I created a custom template and saved it as such (.dotx). And when I want to use it, I go File>New>My Templates>APA Format.dotx. All of that is fine, and the template works fine.

My question: can I have my custom template show up NEXT to the My Templates folder, Blank Document template, etc. Right now that top row of Available Templates has: Blank document, Blog post, Recent templates, Sample templates, My templates, and New from existing. I want to simply add my custom template to this row of options. That would allow me to select New> APA Format.dotx.

If you need a better explanation, please ask.

I appreciate any and all help!

Can you help me with this problem?

When I create a Custom Template Order Form in MS WORD, if you hit the ENTER KEY (carriage return key), it adds an extra line of space to my form, making it longer than needed. If you continue to use the Enter Key, you can add infinite number of additional lines of space to the form which is exactly what I don't need. My template takes up the entire 8 1/2 x 11 form that I have designed and I want the form to remain no larger than 8 1/2 x 11 even after the form is filled out by the recipient.

Is there a way to disable the Enter Key from this form? The Tab Key is used to tab from field to field.

Your help would be sincerely appreciated.


A:Problem with Custom Template Form in MS Word

Place your form fields into tables.
Set the height of the table row to EXACTLY. Then, they can type all day long, but the text will just disappear below the visible part of the table row.

Form fields also have character limitations.

The only way to disable the Enter key is to use macro code. If macros aren't enabled, this solution won't work anyway. The above is the best workaround.

Recently our main file server (Serv3) crashed (one hard drive died and when attempting to rebuild the RAID array it was rebuilt with corrupt data). In an effort to get people working again I used our tape backups to restore all of our files to our new server (DCServ1). When opening some word files Word 2000 hands up, regardless of computer. When using Word 2007 it freezes but states that it is trying to connect to a template on Serv3/{pathname} and you can press Escape to cancel.

Is there a way to fix this using Word 2000?

We currently switched from WordPerfect to Word 2010. In WordPerfect we had a macro for the letterhead where you typed in your information (or picked from a drop down list in some places) and then it would bring up your document for you to continue typing in. I need to set up the same thing in Word and thought of using forms etc. but I want to keep it as close to the WordPerfect way as possible.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can acheive this?

I am relatively new to VBA so please bare with me.

The company I work for has multiple business divisions and each business has multiple branch locations.

The letter template needs to allow the user to select their business division in a combobox in a userform which will populate that field in a table in the footer.

I then need to populate the address and contact details, also contained in a table in the footer. I would like this information to be pulled from an excel spreadsheet which will allow for updates by administrators who may have very basic level knowledge of Word. The other option, I believe, is to use docvariables, but I am unsure of how they work. I can only assume that the information is manually entered into the userform and that the document remembers the information?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I am running Word 2010 on a PC, running Windows 7.

I cannot figure out how to make changes to the "normal" template and have those changes apply to old word files.

In old versions of Windows and Office, I used to be able to make changes to the normal template by going in through the Appdata, and the changes that I made would be reflected in both new documents created, and old documents when selecting "normal" as a text style. However, now I cannot even make changes to the normal template by going through file locations and saving changes.

I can only make changes to the normal quick style icon (by right clicking on "modify" and then applying all changes to "new documents based on this template.") However, this does not alter the "normal" quick style icon in files saved prior to making the changes to the normal template. How can I get my updated normal template to apply to all documents, not just new ones?

OR- maybe there is another solution...

The reason I need the normal template to apply to all documents is that in the new word, I cannot copy and paste and maintain source formatting (even when pasting special and selecting "keep source formatting".) The paste always takes on the destination style, and if the destination style has a "normal" template that is different from the source "normal" style, it automatically selects the destination style and WILL NOT keep source formatting.

A solution could be that you take the files that outlook created in your present outlook directory and after making sure that outlook is closed. Copy all the files in that directory to your directory of choice..
Then go into the file location in outlook and add them to your email userid.

Then after closing oulook and restarting it, check to see that the files are correct in the file location in your userid selection.

Other than that, you can delete the present userid and create a new one where you get to change the location of the files.

Hope this is not confusing..

I write about a specialist subject for my living and over the years I have built up a custom.dic of specialist terms that now totals almost 60,000 words (it also includes non-specialist words, of course). I was using Word 2003 until I recently upgraded my PC and, with it, I upgraded to Office 2010, thus I now use Word 2010. In Word 2003 I called this specialist dictionary custom2.dic and it seemed simple enough to place a copy into the correct directory, go to File, Options, Proofing and click on Custom Dictionaries to make custom2.dic my default. However, as soon as I use Spellcheck, this file is reduced from 1.08MB to 170KB, and the words reduced to just 9,000-odd. Any ideas why this happens and, more importantly, any suggestions, please, how I can retain all 60,000 words?

Hi, I have a .dot template containing vba that i would like to use for new documents. However, as soon as I rename or relocate this template, any document that I have previously created from it loses all inherited vba. I was under the impression all elements of a template (such as vba) were meant to be passed on (embedded into) to the new document at creation, instead of just the template passing its own path/folder reference so that the new document can be directed back to the template to read the vba when required.

As the documents created from this template will be distributed to various computers which may not even have a local copy of the template, this is a big issue. I am using Word 2003.

...will the document update automatically?

A:Word 2013: If I add a template to a document then update the template

Do you mean if you created a new document from a template. Your very brief question is not very clear.

If you created a new document from a stored template then altering the template will not alter the document.

A template is a stored base design that you have stored for future use, so that it can be used to create a new document with the same format. Once that new document has been created & saved it is no longer connected to the template.

I am trying to create a template with specific styling to be used by our group. Any document created with this template should be saved to a shared network folder. I'd like to know if this is possible...

When I right click on my template and choose NEW, the resulting document should use...

- the default text font face, size and colour that I specified.
- the default paragraph spacing and indentation rules that I specified.
- Default to saving at location as "Z:\Shared Info"

All help is appreciated!

A:Change default text and paragraph style + save location in Word 2007?

I would suggest 1st creating a new folder in any one of your Shared locations. Then open a new Word doc within that folder, click on the Styles icon, select any template and click on the little down-arrow to the right of the template's name, click on Modify, and set up your customized template exactly as you want it. You can also change the name of the new template to anything that you want.

When you're done customizing your template, be sure to check (at the bottom of the screen) "New documents based on this template." So long as you create any other documents within this folder, they should automatically be saved to the new folder. And just be sure that for each one, you remember to utilize your customized template.

I have got Microsoft Office 2010 installed on Windows Vista and on Windows 7, and when I open a document in Word, I would like to view it at a zoom of 100% instead of the default zoom of 150%. I tried to follow the instructions over here in order to reduce the zoom permanently, but the macros simply disappear each time I close Word and open it again. I also followed the idiot's guide to installing macros as indicated in the link above, and the macros worked...but as mentioned before, they refuse to stick around.

What do I do in order to prevent the macros from disappearing?

Thanks in advance for your help

A:Word 2010: how do I change default viewing zoom of document?

i've never needed macros - i use the zoom slider at the bottom-right of the document window.

with saved documents, it seems that the zoom level is saved with the file - so if you saved at 100%, it will open later at 100%.

to set the level for new blank documents, use the slider, then close down word - the next new document will appear at that same level, with no need to save.

that's how it works for me, anyway.

just tested, and it keeps the level after a reboot too.

Hi, I just thought I'd pose this question, I don't even know if it's possible.

I work at a t-shirt company and we create sheets for each order we do, showing all the sizes for each shirts, their totals, and then under that two pictures, the front of the shirt and the back.

Some of these designs we do quite a bit of and up until now the girl doing these has imported each picture by hand using corel draw and printing it out, and then filling in the totals by hand.

I thought it might be possible to create a template that lets her just type in the numbers of each size shirt that will automatically give her a total and, more importantly, I was hoping there was a way to have her be able to simply type in a letter (our t-shirt fronts are labeled by letter) of the front and have the program automatically put in the picture she was referencing when it prints out. I thought if I told excel where the pictures were and make the letter in that cell reference a specific one it would be possible. I don't know anything about excel, however, so I don't know how to go about doing it.

Is this possible? How would it be done if it is? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

HI guys I need to create a template of our letterhead in office

why do we need to do this?
This is so we can create a PDF invoice or general letter and email it. We are using Flash paper to convert files to PDF

We have 2 letterheaded papers, 1 is the mane letter head and the other is a continuation sheet.

What I want is to create a template in office 2003, when using this temaplet if I write an invoice and go past the first page. Office automatically adds the second page "continuation letter head" and continue to do so for as many pages I add.

So basically the first page should be the Letterhead and every page after should be the continuation sheet.

The letter head and the continuation sheet look very similar except the continuation sheet does not repeat our address phone numbers and so on.

How Do I create a custom folder template so I can use it and apply it to other folders. The only option it gives are General Items, Documents, Pictures, Music, & Videos. Five is far too little for any computer. I need to create templates for Fonts, Photoshop, 3d, and others. I don't want to use only the five given to me because it will ruin everything already set to those templates. All I can find is how to change the settings for the five already listed but nothing about how to create new custom templates. Many results are misleading, including ones on this forum, with titles that specify custom folder templates but only asks how to adjust certain folders or customize the current default 5. There seems to be no information, let alone a single post about this problem because Google, DuckDuckGo, and every search engine doesn't show anything to this specific problem. They all only show results on how to adjust the default ones. I am surprised that since Windows 7 came to be in 2009, nobody has inquired about this. How would I accomplish this task?

Hello Techies: I'm looking for an easier way to have a table checklist (it was copied and pasted to email from Excel) on outlook that's emailed to me daily to be a saved template on Outlook as opposed to the person sending it to me to go back into the previous email and write over previous data?
This is a checklist a person does everyday and updates a grid like table which I had copied into an outlook email. The subject is always the same so I have a folder rule whereby these daily emails are stored. The person goes into the previous day's email and copies the grid/template to a new email with the same subject tittle and enters the new data. I wonder if I can save a template of that grid so whenever the person clicks new email the template/grid automaticallly appears with the same subject tittle, thus avoiding the extra work of copying from an old email?

Okay, so when I use a template for an email, it messes the whole thing up. Colors disappear, font changes, even bolding and underlining vanish, and I believe links no longer work. That is once it is sent, the "draft" everything looks perfect.

However I can take all the text from a template and put it in a new email and it will send as it should. I can even Forward the copy in my Sent Folder in Outlook and it will forward it as a Good email with no mess ups.

I could really use help with this as it is a nuisance when doing 10 or 20 emails based off of templates... I have tried to recreate the same templates but still have no luck with them. They were originally made with Outlook 2k3 if it matters.

I created a Word form template with check and text boxes. Close to the bottom of the page I placed a check box, then a description, then text box for a total of three across and seven down. I used the tab so the check boxes would appear in straight line down.
The problem is when you type in a text box the rest of the across line will move over and not maintain down alignment.
If someone could assist me with figuring out how to allow typing in the text box and not move the others, I would greatly appreciate it. I would send the form by email if you need to look at it.

Thank you very much for any assistance anyone could provide,

It might be a corrupt normal.dot file. Find all instances of this hidden file and delete, then launch Word again. Should fix it, if that's the problem.

I have created a MSWord Template, using MS Office Word 2003. I have established header and footer. In the footer, using "auto text", want to create the "filename". Once the header/footer info is set up, I save the template to be used later, However, when I open the template, the "Document1" or whatever the document number is, appears in the footer as the filename. I have tried to save the document with the name I want, but it remains as "Document1" (or whatever). It doesn't capture the filename on save.

What do I need to do?

I am trying to create a simple letterhead for my agency. I made it and saved it as a template, whcih I thought would mean thoat it woulodn't shift if I wanted to type something on it, but apparently I am not bright enough to figure this out so i will ask you all, does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I am attaching the file. OK, well apparently I can't attach the file because TSG doesn't allow for .dot files. so suggestions? Cures? Curse removals?

I have created a word template which I have saved into a directory on a shared drive (not the template directory on my c drive that it defaults to).

When I open the document and enter data into it and then try to save it as a word document (and not a template), the option to change the document type is greyed out (so I can only save it as a template).

Is there any way of saving the template as a word document??

Many thanks
