    Template preview (Word 2000)

    I'd like to know how to include a preview in a Word template, so that the preview is visible when the user selects File -> New.

    thanks

    Alan

    Use the same method which you would use with a document; i.e., go to File > Properties, Summary tab, select Save preview picture, then save the template.

    Here is the recipe:
    <UL><LI>Open the template.
    <LI>Select File / Properties.
    <LI>Select the Summary tab.
    <LI>Make sure the Save Preview Picture box is checked.
    <LI>Click OK.
    <LI>Save the template.[/list]Be aware that:
    <UL><LI>The usefulness of a preview is limited - it depends on the contents of your template.
    <LI>Your template and documents will be much larger than without the preview.[/list]

    Thank you Hans and Gary. Didn't realise it was so simple [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img] but may need some thought to make the thumbnail preview "useful", as you say.

    cheers
