Re: WORD inquiry
But didn't he say to create a new document using the new template?
Not that I noticed--he just had steps 1, 7, 8, and an added 9.
When I reread step 1, though, I realize it says "paste into Word template." That means every document he creates with that template will start with the pasted text of the entire copied document.
That's not something I'd want to do...at least not beyond a few pages of standard front matter, maybe.

Attaching a template to a document and selecting the "Automatically Update" option (in the Templates and Add-Ins dialog box) provides the benefit of ongoing stylistic consistency. Coupled with network location of the template, this ensures all your documents will always use the latest version of the approved style sheet, with no additional effort on the writers' part.
'S all good.
