Adding a Custom Template


In addition to the collection of business document templates provided in the Template Manager, you can also easily add your own FS Pro documents to create custom templates for quick and easy reuse.

You can use custom document templates in Word documents to jump-start your writing and create consistency.

Before you begin

Before you begin, use FS Pro to create the document you want to add as a custom template in the Template Manager.

Tip: Custom templates should not include headers and footers. When you insert a custom template, its header and footer will not be inserted in your document. They are ignored to prevent that they change existing headers and footers.
