Copy styles and AutoText between documents or templates

You can use the Organizer to copy style and AutoText between your documents and templates. For example, if you have created a custom style in one document and want to use it in another, you can copy the style instead of recreating it.

  1. On the View menu, click Draft, Web Layout, Outline, or Print Layout.

  2. On the Tools menu, click Templates and Add-Ins.

  3. Click Organizer.

  4. To copy items to or from a different template or file, click Close File, and then click Open File to open the template or file that you want.

  5. Click the tab for the kind of items that you want to copy.

  6. Click the items that you want to copy in either list, and then click Copy.

    To select a range of items, hold down SHIFT , and then click the first and last items. To select nonadjacent items, hold down COMMAND as you click each item.

    Note: If you cannot save changes to the template, or if the Copy button is unavailable, the file might be protected or locked.
