    Style Gallery Preview (Word 2000)

    We have created templates for various outline numbering schemes that we use. The templates contain styles and some formatted text to give an idea of how the numbering is set up. We'd like to have the templates preview examples or styles in the Style Gallery. We've saved the templates with the setting Save Preview on under File | Properties. That preview works under File | New but does not in the Style Gallery. Is there a way to get a template to preview examples or styles in the Style Gallery? Your help would be appreciated! Thanks

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Sorry for the delayed reply. The "trick" is to create an AutoText entry named Gallery Example. This will be used when you click Example in the Style Gallery.

    - Open the template.
    - Create some paragraphs of text, one for each style you want to show.
    - Select the paragraphs.
    - Select Insert | AutoText | AutoText...
    - Make sure that your template is selected in the "Look in" dropdown box.
    - Type Gallery Example in the "Enter AutoText entries here" box.
    - Click Add.
    - You can now delete the text from the template.
    - Save the template.

    To test:
    - Select Format | Theme...
    - Click Style Gallery...
    - Select your template.
    - Click Example.
