Creating Word Templates

Why create word templates and how do we create them without unwanted add-ons?

The number one no-no is to not base your template on an existing document. This will only invite every little attribute or hanger-on that is either not really obvious, but not deleted, to come up later and haunt you. 

Also, don’t base your new template on a new document. 

The best way to create a new word template is to base it on a new template file as below.

Goto File tab-> New->My Templates in the AvailableTemplates section -> Blank Document ->Click the Template radio button in the Create New section in the bottom right corner-> OK

A clean start helps ensure a clean template for distribution, and less support calls for you (if others will be using your template), or less error detection even if the template is only for yourself.
