Many people know what templates are but many less people understand what they’re and why they’re useful. The idea that templates can speed up your productivity isn’t particularly new. Templates have been around for years and they’ve always been useful to some degree. If you’ve ever had a business meeting with only an outline and minutes of the agenda, then you’ve probably had at least a little hands on experience with templates. They make the whole experience much more manageable, even if you have only a few minutes to spare.
It’s not surprising that most webmasters and designers look for quick and easy ways to create new documents. The problem is that creating a “Template” document is quite hard work and often quite boring. You either have to spend several hours creating a document from scratch or you need to rip out half the content from an existing document and re-write it with the same information again (also sometimes this is achieved by using “automatic formatting tools”). This creates a huge amount of wasted time for users, and this has led many designers to simply avoid using templates altogether. Fortunately, there are tools that make life easier.
There are two main features to templates which make them so useful: the ability to insert code into the document, and the ability to create links from one template to another. To use the insert code feature, a designer just needs to copy any existing text in a template and place it into the document. He can then enter a series of text, commands, and other symbols into the text box. When the user clicks to open the dialogue box, he’s then able to immediately see the inserted code within the opened text.
The second feature of templates that make them particularly useful is the ability to automatically fill-in-the-blank forms. Most word processing templates allow you to fill in the blank areas, but not all do. Word by itself doesn’t allow you to. The good news is that some templates are available which can be easily integrated into Word so that you can create fill-in-the-blank forms right from your word processing software. These templates are usually made up of pre-existing fields, and plug-ins are required to customize them to fit Word’s unique requirements.
One of the best things about templates is how they can be used as part of the design process. A well-designed template can be used to replace one or more key visual elements of your original draft, making it much easier for a writer to add his own personal touch. For example, a graphic designer may include a toolbox on a template for a newsletter template that contains a variety of different buttons for a writer to click on when he wants to add new pictures to the newsletter. Or a marketing writer might use a template to create clickable links in the body of his new document, saving him time when it comes to actually writing the content of the new document. The possibilities for designing templates this way are nearly endless.
If you want to try your hand at developing Word documents, but you aren’t sure how to make use of existing templates, then there is an easy solution for you. There is a software program called Open Office, which allows users to quickly and easily customize Word with their own template layouts. All a developer needs to do is install the software on their computer, and then open a template in Open Office to see how it looks. Using the editor, a developer can customize the layout, color scheme, and appearance of the template just by clicking on the appropriate buttons. After making any changes, all the developer needs to do is click on the ok button in order to save the template and send it to the company’s Word department.
