Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video How to use the exercise files, part of Word 2013: Templates in Depth.
- If you have a premium subscription to the Lynda.com training library, then you will have access to the exercise files that I'll be using to demonstrate different topics in this course. You can download them from the site. I usually simply place them on the desktop when I'm taking a course on Lynda.com, and when I open a particular file, there'll be a banner that appears on the screen that tells you which file I'm opening. There are mostly word documents. There are a couple of images, as well. Now, what if you don't have access to these files? That's okay, you can start with some forms that you wish to work with.
Ideally, I think it would be good if you had a form that was something like a traditional checkbox form, like this, something laid out in a table, and I think it would also be useful if you had something that looked like a report with sections. That's what this document looks like, with headings and sections. But, if you have different documents that you're eager to turn into templates, feel free to use those as well.
- Recall how many global templates are in Microsoft Word.
- Name the folder that a template file is automatically saved in.
- Identify the command that will allow you to apply a specific theme and font style to all new blank documents.
- Recall the qualities of read privileges in Word 2013.
- Name what is opened when opening a template from the SharePoint library.
- List the steps that will allow you to insert the author’s name from the document properties into the template.
