Document templates

A document template is a document that Atlantis can use to create new documents.

The Atlantis document templates must be stored under the "My documents/Atlantis/Templates" folder.

By default, the Atlantis Setup installs a collection of document templates. You can use them to create your own documents.

To open a document template for viewing or editing, choose the File | Document Templates... menu The main menu or simply menu is a horizontal bar with clickable commands anchored to the top of the main window of Atlantis:

Main menu
command. Then if needed, make changes to this template, and save it.

By default Atlantis uses the Normal.rtf template to create new formatted documents (RTF, DOC, and DOCX). The Plain.rtf template is used for displaying new and existing plain text documents.

You can specify your own template for the desired document format. For this, choose the File | New | Formats & Templates... menu The main menu or simply menu is a horizontal bar with clickable commands anchored to the top of the main window of Atlantis:

Main menu
command:

Document templates

You can also use this dialog to specify the Default format for new documents. Atlantis uses this format to create new documents through the File | New | Document command.

 

You can modify existing document templates but you can also create your own templates. If you have to create many documents that will have almost the same contents, you can create one such document and save it as a document template (choose the File | Save Special | Save As Template... command).
To create a document from your newly created template, choose the File | New | Create From Template... command, then choose your template.

Tip:

  • When the Always show templates window option is on (the Tools | Options... menu The main menu or simply menu is a horizontal bar with clickable commands anchored to the top of the main window of Atlantis:

    Main menu
    command, the General tab), Atlantis will show the Create Document From Template window every time you choose the File | New | Document command or press CtrlN or click the New document Button image toolbar button.

    When this option is off, Atlantis creates a new document of the Default format for new documents (the document template associated with this document format is used).

    So if you often create documents that are based on different document templates, we recommend you turn this option on.
