Adding templates to the Work menu

I have a couple of templates that i use regularly inmy job and I would 
like to add them to the Work menu in Word 2008. Is there a way of doing 
this? I know I can just open the project gallery and do it from there 
but, as a speed freak, saving a few clicks would be a boon! And if I 
could add new pages from the same file that would be even better :)

Thanks in advance

Hi Mark;

You can add the templates to the Work menu but you'll actually be opening
the template when you select one from there, not creating a new file based
on the template. What you might consider is creating an unmodified document
based on each of the templates & adding them to the Work menu instead. Do a
Command+G on the target file & tick the checkbox for "Stationery".

As for adding "new pages", forget it � there are no pages in a Word
document's file structure. There may be other approaches but it would be
helpful if you'd specify which version & update level of Word you're using
as well as a more detailed description of what you're trying to accomplish.

Which is not what I wanted to do :(

I thought it might have to be that way - I wanted the flexibility of 
the project gallery and the simplicity of clicking a menu item

Sorry to be dense, but a cmd-G from where?

Sorry Word 2008 (as stated) with all the updates - I take no risks with 
security in a school environment full of Windows machines!

> as well as a more detailed description of what you're trying to accomplish.

I have one document that I needed to use to set work for an absent 
colleague. It consists of various things such as lesson, class, 
objectives and plan. I wanted this available in the work menu so I 
could call up a page, fill in the details and then do something similar 
for the next lesson, and so on. I suppose I'm looking for some hybrid 
between the work menu and PowerPoint's "Duplicate Slide" feature.
In the end I just copied and pasted the information as many times as I needed

Thanks for your help

Have you considered creating a Table structure & using either of the
following:

1- Adding it to the Scrapbook so you can just drag it in when needed,

2- Creating an AutoText item, or

3- Creating an AutoCorrect entry

Sounds to me like either would suit your purpose. Check them out in Help.

Ah. So not some new Word2008 hotkey I'd missed then :)

I had something similar set up in TextExpander, so I may go back to 
that ... although the Scrapbook/Table idea sounds promising

Thanks for the advice

Automatically Update Date/Time in Template
