Updating iweb 1 1 2 templates
Over the years, I've noticed users making the same mistakes with Word templates. There's only one right way to create a Word template, but most users don't use it - they don't even know how to do it!
The May release of i Web 1.1 addressed some of these deficiencies, particularly in the area of adding comments and searches to blogs and podcasts that are published on . A second update in May fixed the bugs introduced in i Web 1.1 and the new 1.1.1 version seems to have resolved some publishing issues.
Every customization that you've applied to Normal is now in your new template.
If you have a formatted document that meets all of your custom needs, you might be tempted to remove all the content and save it as a template file (dot, dotx, dotm), but don't. Create the template first and then apply it to the documents as necessary.
There's no reason this process should be so convoluted!
(I wonder if it doesn't point to one of those Oh crap! moments deep within the Microsoft trenches.) Of course, this organizational flaw also keeps Word developers in business.Unfortunately, creating and applying templates - a process that's incumbent on working productively and efficiently in Word - remains untapped.
