Loading a Template Globally

If you need to make the items in a template available in the active document, but you don't want to attach the template to the document, you can load the template globally. When a template is loaded globally, all the items it contains are available to all documents.

Follow these steps to load a template globally:

  1. Choose Tools, Templates and Add-Ins.

  2. Click the Add button in the Templates and Add-Ins dialog box to display the Add Template dialog box.

  3. Navigate to the template that you want to add globally and double-click it.

  4. In the Templates and Add-Ins dialog box, the template now appears under Checked Items Are Currently Loaded (see Figure 7.10). (You can later clear the check box next to its name if you want to temporarily unload the template, or select it and click the Remove button to permanently unload it.)

    Figure 7.10. The templates you selected appear in the Checked Items are Currently Loaded list.


  5. Click the OK button.


If you want a template to load globally every time you start Word, copy the template to C:\Windows\ApplicationData\Microsoft\Word\Startup.
