I'm investigating in depth how building blocks and galleries are used, and wonder if anyone has any Best Practices to recommend? I don't want to just clutter up the Quick Parts gallery, but I haven't quite figured out which galleries are visible from which ribbon tabs and groups...

The goal is to create a template that I use for a client's docs, and of course deliver that template with the doc and make it easy enough for them to edit and not totally destroy the doc (or just type everything in manually instead of using these nifty features).

And I want them to be able to, for example, select the "Start New Chapter" building block, which will insert the appropriate section break, graphics and header/footer elements, and begin the new chapter with the correctly styled paragraph.

In the Word 2003 days, this was all done with AutoText, but now with the Building Blocks and Galleries, I'm still not sure where things like this are most visible...
