Word templates

How word documents and word templates relates to each other.

When a word document is created, it is created from an template, normally the normal template.

It inherits three things:

  • -Styles
  • Content (incl headers)
  • Page settings

These three parts are now copied to the document and the relation between the template and the document is lost.

How to change the template:


Update the document with it’s template’s styles. Tools –> Tempaltes and Add-ins. Tick the Automatically Update Document AStyles. Apply and then untick the box.


No other way den manually copy and paste

Page Settings

As with content.
