Background

Develop a consistent, professional-quality corporate template using Microsoft Word.

Problem

People use their own fonts, change styles, and generally make a mess of standardization. This makes it time consuming to change the appearance of all documents to a specific standard.

Question

In Microsoft Word 2010, how would you create a template that:

  • Eliminates the ability to change the fonts in a document.
  • Prevents adding new styles.
  • Forces users to use styles.
  • Provides very few styles (e.g., body, three headings, header, footer).

Basically, I want to restrict the documents so that people can only picks styles when editing. They should not be able to modify styles, either.

Ideas

It seems there is the ability to restrict styles. Looks promising.

Many thanks!

Maybe this ilustrated guide can help you: http://www.addictivetips.com/microsoft-office/restrict-editing-to-secure-word-2010-document/

In a few lines, word 2010 has the "Restrict Editing" function (menu Review) that gives you a large choice of restrictions. Even suggested restriction can be applied.

If I correctly understood your question, I think you will achieve your objective.
