Notes on Creating Cover Pages

A Cover Page template defines the style, fields and format of a document report front cover that a user can choose to apply to any kind of document report they are generating, in which case the Cover Page styles override any styles of the same name defined in the report template or Normal.rtf file.

The simplest way to create a new Cover Page is to copy one of the system-provided files (for portrait output or for landscape output) or another custom Cover Page Contents, and edit the style definitions in the copy. However, you can create a Cover Page from scratch if you wish; this would be initially derived from the Normal.rtf file.

Access

Use one of the methods outlined here to display the 'New Document Template' dialog and create the new Cover Page template file.

After creating the new template file, edit the styles in the Document Template Designer using the 'Styles, Special Text and Table of Contents' facilities.

Ribbon

Publish > Documentation > Document Templates :
