    Templates/e-mailing docs/reattaching templates

    <font face="Georgia">I read a post here not too long ago that I'd like to review again. A search (I spent about an hour today at the office trying to find it) has failed to turn up the post I now need. If memory serves, the post was a situation where someone was recommending that if/when a document had been e-mailed outside of their firm/company and then sent back to them, it would be prudent to do a "File, New", choose the appropriate template and insert the document into that template. My thinking at the time was that made really good sense so as to ensure none of the styles had been changed in any way or had inherited unwanted styles from the e-mailer. I think the post then indicated that the "Automatically update" styles box be checked, saved, closed then reopened to uncheck the auto-update box. If anyone can remember this post or if it was a post they responded to, I would be grateful for a nod in the right direction. TIA </font face=georgia> <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15>

    Re: Templates/e-mailing docs/reattaching templates

    Thanks for the reply. Alas it is not the post I'm seeking. On my home pc I did find a note to myself on my calendar dated January 26, 2001 along the following lines:
    "Found good info today on-line regarding dupliating docs. Fwd to ofc & try this out. M/be worth communicating to users?"
    Briefly, experts suggest that if you duplicate a document, NEVER open it and do a save as (i.e. as in name edited out Joe's Blah Agreements 1-11. They were all based on the original doc. Other side uses Track Changes, known to corrupt esp when duplicating a doc for version 2). The experts are suggesting do File, New, choose the appropriate template and insert the file and then do Save As.
    So, Leif. Thanks and that's about as close as I can come to finding the phantom post. I need to get some sleep ... and then I'll try the search again with some info from my 'note to followup'. Pity I didn't do the followup ... <img src=/S/yawn.gif border=0 alt=yawn width=15 height=15>

    Re: Templates/e-mailing docs/reattaching templates

    OK, based on someone actually posting on the 26th, try these:
    622
    1262

    I'm in the habit of adding interesting posts to a sub-folder of my favourites called, funnily enough, 'Follow Up'.
    It's getting quite full in there now...

    Re: Templates/e-mailing docs/reattaching templates

    Thanks a million for your assistance. Not the post I recall but maybe in one of the posts there was a reference to another site (like Charles Kenyon) and I found the info there.
    But I really like the idea of your "follow-up" folder. How do I do that?? Do I do a Ctrl+C = copy of posts and then add them to the folder? Or do file, save as, and add them to the folder? Off to work now ...

    Re: Templates/e-mailing docs/reattaching templates

    Follow-up folder:

    In IE (5.5 here) :
    Favorites | Organize Favorites | Create Folder
    create a folder called 'Follow Up'
    Whilst viewing a post to follow-up :
    Favorites | Add to Favorites
    navigate to your Follow Up folder and add.

    In NS (4.08 here) :
    Bookmarks | Edit Bookmarks | File | New Folder
    and call it Follow Up
    Whilst viewing a post to follow-up :
    Bookmarks | File Bookmarks
    and select Follow Up

    Thanks so much for spending time on this post, Lief. You're the best! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
    I've created a followup folder and from now on will make sure I "add to favorites". I have a suspicion that I may have found that information out from one of the links mentioned in the post and will try a Google search to try to locate.
