Wordman Special: Supercharge Your Word Templates With Building Blocks
- Dick Eassom
Introduced with Word 2007, Building Blocks are an extension of the old AutoText feature that allowed you to insert a block of text with a shortcut key combination. But Building Blocks are far more powerful than simple AutoText! With Building Blocks, you can create a simple content management system, especially when combined with the Content Controls we learnt how to use last time. If you use pre-defined content in your proposals and you’re wasting time looking for the latest version of the source or inserting foldouts, section dividers, or other special document content, then watch this presentation!
