Microsoft Word/Microsoft Word 2007 - Footer Question


Hi Karen,

How do I retain all specifications of a footer that includes specific alignment and multiple graphics, so I can copy/paste in future documents or save it to the gallery of footer templates?

Hi there Aaron

I don't know if there any any "footer template" function in Word, however you could simply save the whole document (containing only your footer) as a custom template so that you can refer to it for future usage.

To save a document as a template, simply choose File - Save As and in file type, choose Word Template (.dot). Word will automatically choose the destination folder, which is a system folder. You may change this if you want, however if you want it to perform like a part of Word, it's probably a good idea to just use the default Templates folder.

I hope this is in some way helpful!
