    Associate a Specific Template to a Word 2010 Document

    Just upgraded to Office 2010.

    I use a template named template.dotx. I've created a document based on that template named document.docx.

    I needed to send document.docx to another Office 2010 user who didn't have the template.dotx template on her computer.

    I emailed template.docx to the user who saved it in her template location. But, when she opened document.docx, it was associated with her normal.dotx.

    Back in Word 2003, it was very simple to associate a different template to a document (Tools > Templates and Addins). I cannot find where the magic happens in Word 2010.

    If you are showing your Developer tab on the ribbon (and you should) then the Templates and Add-ins dialog can be found using Developer > Document Template.

    I prefer to add this particular button to my Quick Access Toolbar. Look for it as 'Templates'

    Thank you, Geof and Andrew! I'm moving from 2003 to 2010 and, so far, I love it...it's just a matter of finding my old friends' new locations!
