Step 2. Create a template containing the required styles, fields, and other elements
You can create your template from an existing document or template that contains some or all of the styles you want for this document, or you can create the template from a blank document. For more about templates, see
Chapter 10 (Working with Templates).
If you use an existing document or template, delete all the text from it except for fields in headers and footers before saving it as the template for this project. It will still have all the styles you defined, even if the text is not there. You can change the styles in the template as your project develops.
Be sure to use File > Templates > Save when creating the template.
