LibreOffice, while not on the exact same level as Microsoft Office, is still quite powerful for a free and open-source product. One of the features many users can take advantage of is the ability to create a template. This is an easy thing to do, therefore, we will discuss it in just a short moment for all you needy LibreOffice users.
Use a Template to create Document in LibreOffice
For those who aren’t aware, a Template, where this word processing tool is concerned, is a model document that is designed to create other documents. For example, you can create a template for your business that contains the logo on all the pages. Any document created from this template, then, will have the logo on all pages.
The interesting thing about Templates is the fact that anything you can do in a regular document, these same things are supported in a template. Furthermore, it is understood that all documents in LibreOffice are based on templates.
If you do not specify a template when firing up a new document, then the new document will be based on the default template.
