    default table

    I'm creating a template and I want to include in it a table that will be the default for "insert a table" ... can this be done? and , if so, how? The table would be fairly simple, that is, 3col, 2row, but all table lines would be in blue with a double double rule beneath the heading. I can create this using draw table but I would like it to be easily added for any table used in the document using this template.

    Hi Joe,

    You can create an AutoText entry for your table.

    - Create the table in your template
    - Select it and press <Alt F3> (AutoText)
    - Provide a name for the AutoText entry

    You can add the AutoText entry to a toolbar if you want:
    - Right-click any toolbar and select Customize
    - On the Commands tab locate AutoText in the Categories list
    - Locate the AutoText entry on the left
    - Drag/Drop to the location of your choice
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    Cheers!

    Hi Joe,

    One step I forgot...(Sorry!)

    At some point before you create your AutoText entry, go to Insert/AutoText/AutoText and change "Look in" at the bottom so it reflects your template.

    Otherwise the AutoText entry will get added to your Normal.dot. If you have already done this, use Tools/Templates and Add-Ins and the Organizer to add the AutoText entry to your template.
    ~~~~~~~~~
    Cheers!
