Saving styles for the other documents on MS Word 2010

  1. Jan 31, 2013 #1
    I don't even know If this is possible but for me it would be very convenient If I could open some document and have all my previously created styles. Unfortunately, now every time I edit some document I have to create those styles all over again so I could apply them. I think there should be something like a template but the problem is that when I use template it is only good for creating documents from scratch and not editing (i.e. I can't open existing document with my template having all style setups and edit it).

    I'm not sure what your trying to do, but you can copy styles from one document to another using the 'Manage Styles, Import/Export' feature.

    Actually, in your situation, sounds like you might benifit from using 'Building Blocks' feature. Do a search MS Word Building Blocks for more info.

    This what I've got from Microsoft Comunity: Developer tab, Document Template->Attach->Home tab, Change Styles->Reset to Quick Styles from [Template Name]

    Is your solution any way better?
