Part Two: WordPerfect
A template is a preformatted document that can be used as a guide for creating a new document. Every document
created in WordPerfect is based on either the default template or a project template.
In this chapter:
• “Default template” on page 31
• “Project templates” on page 33
When you open WordPerfect, the blank document you see is based on the default template—a special WordPerfect
template (WPT) file that records various workspace settings.
Besides storing basic document settings (such as the default font and the default text and graphics styles), the default
template also stores any customizations you make to the WordPerfect work area.
Choosing the default template
You can choose a different default template.
You can also choose an additional objects template. This is a second default template that stores objects such as
keyboards, menus, template macros, toolbars, and styles that you can use in addition to or in place of those in the
default template. For example, a system administrator could use an additional objects template as a network template
that would overwrite a user’s default template.
Applying the current document style to the default template
You can apply the style used in the current document to the default template.
Applying template settings across multiple instances
You can choose to apply template changes across all instances of WordPerfect. This technique is especially useful for
refreshing all open documents that are based on the same template.
Document, style, and compatibility settings typically affect all instances, whereas customization settings affect
only the current instance (and subsequent instances). For details, see the Help.
