How to Create a Word 2007 Template from Scratch
Build the template by adding needed text, formatting, and other stuff.
When creating a new template, simply put into the document all the styles you plan to use, plus common text. For example, a Book template may contain all the styles you need for writing books plus the word Chapter at the start of each page. That’s because each document is a chapter, and starting it with the text Chapter already in the template saves you valuable typing energy molecules.
