In Word 2010, you need to go to the Options dialog box, click the Customize Ribbon item and choose Developer tab on the right side. This displays the Developer tab. I thought this was pretty obscure. Imagine having to go to the Developer tab to attach a template! It should be on the Page Layout tab.

I had the same problem. I found it was due to IntegriSign.dot, an electronic signiture pad. Once uninstalled, problem finally stopped. It would also change the date on the file from its creation date to today's date, which messes up my ability to find files by date.

I think I've just solved this problem, but if the solution is true it would make the cause of it quite odd. The template I was talking about was saved in a folder on my data partition. I've recently cleared all Windows caches, MRU etc. and while I previously used the MRU in the start menu to create documents based on that template, I now had to do it via ...

So reading Microsoft's KnowledegeBase article on this gives the infuriating answer that this is by design, so you need to write a macro to do this. Handily they provide a Macro which updates the fields when you open the file, rather than save. This actually makes more sense for a number of fields, so as long as you use LASTSAVEDBY and SAVEDATE these will ...

I found some info about doing this with a macro, and it works in 2013, but I don't have 2010 to test it on. If you don't have macros enabled, you will need to go into the Trust Center and enable all macros, which Outlook advises against doing because malicious code could run. Then you have to add a custom group to the ribbon and add macros to that custom ...

As kishore suggested you can write VBA to probably limit available choices, but the users could always disable the macros and have free reign. If you're in an corporate setting just providing a list of sane default color themes, fonts, and font sizes while removing other color themes and having a manager send out memos explaining only to use the approved ...

Simply click the Office button in the upper-right corner and select "New". A dialog appears to choose a template for the new document. Clicking on "My templates" opens the exact same dialog from previous Office versions. Note that you don't get that dialog by hitting Ctrl+N. You have to access it through the Office button.

There's not much special about sty or cls files; they're just LaTeX files with a special purpose and another file extension. You could use any editor to write them, preferably your favourite LaTeX editor. I'm not aware of any dedicated editor just for style and class files; and I'm not really sure how the WYSIWYG concept could be applied to styles/classes ...

One solution is to use a macro-enabled template (dotm) with a VBA macro to replace SaveAs. An example macro is: Public Sub FileSaveAs() Dim dlg As Dialog Dim strSaveFolder strSaveFolder = Application.Options.DefaultFilePath(wdDocumentsPath) Select Case ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate.Name Case "Woodworking.dot" ...

Open the Microsoft Word Template file (*.dotx) Edit it. Save it under another name. Close Microsoft Word. Delete the original and rename the new one to replace the original. Alternatives: How to modify an existing template in Word 2007?

If you open the .dotx, then you're editing the template, so it will save as a template (otherwise how do you maintain the template. Don't you need to create a new .docx based on the template (via File|New), that then gives you a new document that will save as you require.

This depends on how you open the .dotx file. If you open it by double clicking, it should give you a new document based on this template, which tries to save as a .docx file. This works the same when within Word, you click the round button and choose 'new'. In the dialog, choose 'new from existing'. If you right click -> 'open' to open the .dotx file, then ...

You can go two ways with Microsoft Office here. You can embed the Excel file inside the Word document. You won't see the Excel file - it is part of the Word document or template. You can double-click on the Excel element (a table or a chart) and edit the data in an Excel user interface. The other way to do it, is to create the Excel file and link it to a ...

I know it isn't EXACTLY the same, but what about just using the Word templates? If you rename a .doc extension to .dot, it turns into a template automatically! What does this do? If you double click that file, it will open a new Word document with that file as the template! It won't over write the template unless you explicitly tell Word to do so. Hitting ...
