category : office 2003 : templates

Ah, I love this. I was online writing up some examples for our new upcoming book, Microsoft Office Word 2003 Inside Out, a huge, advanced-level five-pound book full of Word knowledge, so I had an excuse to play with the Office Online Templates page. If you haven't checked this out yet, and you're working with the Office 2003 soon-to-be-official beta, go visit! I am so impressed with the vast collection of templates. Fifteen different categories to choose from! Stuff for school, stuff for home, presentations, business letters, even grant proposals. And fun things, too. When you download the templates (they are all free, by the way), they open on your computer and plug in all your data automatically. For example, if you download a letter template, after the letter downloads, Word displays the new template, complete with your name and address information in the header. A Template Help task pane automatically appears, giving you more information on using the template and asking you to rate (on a scale of one to five stars) what you think of the template. I'm all for creativity and ease of use--and this template system on Office Online gets a five-star rating from me for both. :)
