To use a template to create a document:

  1. From the main menu, choose File > New > Templates and Documents. The Templates and Documents dialog opens.
  2. In the box on the left, click the Templates icon if it is not already selected. A list of template folders appears in the center box.
  3. Double-click the folder that contains the template that you want to use. A list of all the templates contained in that folder appears in the center box.
  4. Click the template that you want to use. You can preview the selected template or view the template's properties:
    • To preview the template, click the Preview icon. A preview of the template appears in the box on the right.
    • To view the template's properties, click the Document Properties icon. The template's properties appear in the box on the right.
  5. Click Open. The Templates and Documents dialog closes and a new document based on the selected template opens in OOo. You can then edit and save the new document just as you would any other document.
