Stefan Blom: another question from original question string 7/19/0

Stefan Blom: New question, but arrising from the same situation we've been
talking
about: Once I've attained the result I want in my document, I want to save
the list format as a template for future documents.

Now, I've noticed an option for doing this from the main Office Drop Down
Options List. I wonder, however, that if I select the option to Save As A
Template then will just the formatiing be saved of my list? Or am I saving
the whole document as a template text and all. My guess is it's the former.
But I'm not 100% sure here. Comment requested. : )

Also: is ther a way to print out the entire thread of messages? There's 12
dar gone pages in this thread. I wanna save 'em. But not one frame at a
time. What can I do? Oh, such a simple question. I should know the answer
to this one. Yah!

If you use the Save As command and choose "Document Template" Word will save
the whole document (contents, page setup, and styles). See
http://word.mvps.org/faqs/customization/CreateATemplatePart1.htm,
http://word.mvps.org/faqs/customization/WhatTemplatesStore.htm, and
http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/templaterelations/index.html.

Any list templates in a document will be included with the new template
created when you save the document as a template, just like any other
formatting and styles. Note, however, that it is crucial to tie list
formatting to styles; that way, it will be (relatively) easy to reuse it.
Also: is ther a way to print out the entire thread of messages? There's
12
dar gone pages in this thread. I wanna save 'em. But not one frame at a

To print an entire thread, I think the easiest way is to make use of google
groups (see http://groups.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en).

The "Unexpected alignment when using styles for headings 1, 1.1, 1.1.1"
thread can be found here:

Stefan: You are the greatest!
I'll have to make time to follow the links you've provided herein. And I'll
get back at ya. See, I kind a expected you'd answer my question about
templates the way you did. I knew it was more involved than one may think.

I'll get to the google stuff later too.

Now go get a Coke a Cola! They've got that in your country, don't they?
