    Template preview (Word XP)

    The templates which ship with Word can be seen in the Preview pane of the File|New dialog. But our own templates are not visible there. Is there a way to have home grown templates appear in the preview window?

    Thanks,
    Richard Barrett

    Here is how to do it:
    <UL><LI>Open one of your templates.
    <LI>Select File / Properties.
    <LI>Select the Summary tab.
    <LI>Check the "Save Preview Picture" box.
    <LI>Click OK.
    <LI>Save and close the template.
    <LI>Repeat for your other templates.[/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 larger than without the preview.[/list]
