Windows 7: Change default text and paragraph style + save location in Word 2007?

Change default text and paragraph style + save location in Word 2007?

I am trying to create a template with specific styling to be used by our group. Any document created with this template should be saved to a shared network folder. I'd like to know if this is possible...

When I right click on my template and choose NEW, the resulting document should use...

- the default text font face, size and colour that I specified.
- the default paragraph spacing and indentation rules that I specified.
- Default to saving at location as "Z:\Shared Info"

All help is appreciated!

I would suggest 1st creating a new folder in any one of your Shared locations. Then open a new Word doc within that folder, click on the Styles icon, select any template and click on the little down-arrow to the right of the template's name, click on Modify, and set up your customized template exactly as you want it. You can also change the name of the new template to anything that you want.

When you're done customizing your template, be sure to check (at the bottom of the screen) "New documents based on this template." So long as you create any other documents within this folder, they should automatically be saved to the new folder. And just be sure that for each one, you remember to utilize your customized template.

Here's some additional help:
