Become more efficient in Word 2013 by using and sharing templates, one of the thousands available in Word or one you create yourself.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Gini Courter. Welcome to Word 2013: Templates in Depth. In this course we'll learn how to become more efficient by creating templates. I'll show you how to find, open, customize, and save some of the thousands of templates that already exist that you have access to from Microsoft. Then we'll talk about how to convert your existing documents to templates. We'll talk about how we format using styles and how we can lock down templates so that our users can't change the look and feel of the documents that are created using those templates.
We'll talk about how to share templates with others. And then we'll explore some of the advanced features that you might wish to use in your templates: content controls, building blocks, document properties, and field codes. I'll show you how to use a Word add-in and how to attach a global template to any existing document. We have a lot to cover. Let's get started.
