Hi, thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be glad to assist you today.
What is the filename of your newly created template? I am referring to the resulting file in the procedures you said you followed.
Also, where did you save the template file?
The filename was 1 Space Times
maybe I should name it 1SpaceTimes
The direction I used are from https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Create-and-use-your-own-template-a1b72758-61a0-4215-80eb-165c6c4bed04
Save a document as a template
Open the document.
Add, delete, or change any text, graphics, or formatting, and make any other changes that you want to appear in all new documents that you base on the template.
On the File menu, click Save As.
On the Format pop-up menu, click Word Template (.dotx).
In the Save As box, type the name that you want to use for the new template, and then click Save.
Unless you select a different location, the template is saved in /Users/ username/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Office/User Templates/My Templates.
If you are using Mac OS X 7 (Lion), the Library folder is hidden by default. To show the Library folder, in the Finder, click the Go menu, and then hold down OPTION .
On the File menu, click Close.
For location it states:
Unless you select a different location, the template is saved in /Users/ username/Library/Application
I did not create a folder. I shall look at the location they give.
I Will let you know what I find
The instructions state that templates are located at:
This PC/Local Disk (C:)/users/James Boucher/ and I didn’t see /Library etc.
Numerous templates are shown when I go File, New but I do not know where they are located...
I found /This PC/Documents/custom office templates directory with
1 Space Times as the only file in it
I need to locate the directory with the other templates and copy
1 Space Times into it. I'm moving all of my files and programs to a Samsung 1T SSD and running Windows 10. There is a major learning curve.
Thank you for writing back with that information. Are you using a Mac or a Windows computer? The path that you are missing, the one with "Library", is for Mac computers. That explains why you are not seeing it if you are using Windows 10.
Using Windows 10
Had other time constrained projects.
I shall get back to this shortly.
I know I need to find where my templates are on SSD with Word 2016.
Switching back and forth from Windows 7 HDD and the Windows 10 SSD while getting programs and files moved.
Using Search Everything.
