Creating a document from a template

You can use templates to create new documents in Writer. Templates serve as the foundation of a set of documents, to make sure they all have a similar layout. For example, all the documents of this User Guide are based on the same template. As a result, all the documents look alike; they have the same headers and footers, use the same fonts, and so on.

Unfortunately, a brand-new OpenOffice.org installation does not contain many templates. It is possible for you to add new templates to your installation and use them for new documents. This is explained in Chapter 10, “Working with Templatesâ€. Many more templates can be downloaded from the Internet.

Once you do have templates on your system, you can create new documents based on them by using File > New > Templates and Documents. This opens a window where you can choose the template you want to use for your document.

The example shown in Figure 18 uses a template called “book†in the My Templates folder. Select it, then click the Open button. A new document is created based on the formats defined in the template.

For more about templates, see Chapter 10, “Working with Templatesâ€.
