- [Gini] Welcome to Word 2016 Templates in Depth. I'm Gini von Courter. In this course I will show you how to become more efficient in Word by creating a special type of document called a template. I'll show you how to find one of the thousands of free templates from Microsoft, then customize and save your own version of that template. Then I'll demonstrate how to convert your existing documents to templates, format the template using styles, then lock down the templates we create so other users can't change the look and feel of documents they create using our templates.
We'll learn how to share templates with others, then explore some of the advanced features you might wish to use in your templates, content controls, building blocks, document properties, and field codes. Every Word document starts with a template. By building your own templates, you can give your documents a head start by including text, tables, illustrations, formatting, and advanced features, whatever your document requires. If you are or aspire to be a Word power user, I invite you to join me for this course on Word Templates.
