Working with Templates

Document Templates

Templates are preset layouts that make it easy to create and shape different types of documents. Templates help you adhere to standard document styles, ensuring professionalism and consistency across your organization and reducing the amount of time you spend formatting. Writer has templates for letters, resumes, invoices, greetings, invitations, brochures and many more. You can also create your own templates which can be used for future projects.
