Software Savvy: Word Templates
Published on June 26, 2020 Law Practice Management
Here’s how to find the template for your document:
Open Microsoft Word. Right there in the first window you will see, along with the option for creating a blank document, the available template options. Simply select the one you wish to use and click “Create.” You can even use the window search bar to look for a specific type of template if you already have something in mind.
Found a formatting scheme that works great for the material you are documenting? Save that format as a template. If you are using Word for Mac, just click “File” and “Save as Template.” To save your own template on a PC, click “File,” “Save as,” then select the location where you’d like to save the template. Under “Save as type” select “Word template (*.dotx)” from the drop-down menu.
