Creating a New Template

Open a blank document, make all the settings changes to font, type, page settings, etc, and then save the settings as a template by choosing save and then Save as type “OpenDocument Spreadsheet Template (.ots)”. Note that you will need to select this setting from a list that is available.

One major point to make, Templates can only be applied to new documents while Styles can be applied to text that is in the process of being written.


Creating a Spreadsheet with a Template

Select File, New, Templates and Documents and then find the template you would like to use. Click on it and click Open. Notice that your Template may be saved in several different places. In this case it was saved in My Documents .


This will apply all of the template settings to your new document.
