document templates - propagate changes to existing documents?
Posted on 2011-10-27
So I feel I should know the answer to this, but not sure if there is some trickery that I am unfamiliar with... so...
When I create a new document from a template it will be based on the template - that bit I get.
If I have 100 documents, all created from the same template and I change the styles in that template AND I have "automatically update document styles" turned on under templates and addins, then my changes should be reflected in the documents....
But... what if (for example) I decide to change the page margins in the template for making it easier to put into a ring binder OR change the layout of my header.... is there a way to automate those type of changes - layout as opposed to styles.... ???
My thoughts are it will require much coding... not sure if CSS can help, don't know much about it.
I'm asking because I want to develop a template that compartmentalises information, at the drop of a hat I want to be able to rearrange the information on my page without loosing links from 1 item of information to another... tall order?
Thoughts appreciated :-)
