[You can open a number of different templates in Word. Click on the link below to explore other Microsoft templates. Be sure to check the icon next to the template title. Some templates are in other programs, like Publisher or Excel.]


Activity 2: Open a template from your computer. Save it with a different name. Insert a new image, and save it again.

Step 1: Go to the place where you saved the Sales Flyer file (saleflyer.doc). Open that file.

Step 2: SAVE YOUR WORD document again, and add your initials to the document. For example, if Bob Barley were saving the file, he would call it "bbsaleflyer.doc).

Step 3: Click on the picture of the house (handles will appear around the edges). Delete the image.

When the clipart appears, click on NEXT until you find a picture you like. When you do, check the box under it.

Step 5: Scroll down the left side column and click on the ARROW in the REVIEW BASKET.  A window will open. Click on DOWNLOAD NOW.

The image file will probably download into your CLIP ORGANIZER, unless you told it to save somewhere else. 

Step 6: When you see the picture on your computer, simply drag it (select the image and hold down the left button while you move the cursor) onto your flyer. Drop it exactly where the picture of the house used to be. If you saved the file somewhere else, drag it from that location.

MAKE: Dodge Ram, half ton, V6 engine.

CONDITION: Great. Rebuilt engine and new tires.

Mileage: Only 103,000 miles!

Enter the text you see in the image above into the second column.

Step 3: Look at the bottom of the flyer. You'll see several sections with places to enter your information. The text has been formatted so that it is vertical instead of horizontal. Select the text in one tab and enter your information there. Enter...

Bob Barley

Step 4: Now select the text you just wrote and copy it into your clipboard (storage area). To do that, with the text selected go to EDIT -> COPY or simple press CONTROL + C on your keyboard. You've done it before, so this is a review.

Step 5: Next, select or highlight the text in the other tabs and simply PASTE the information into each one. Go to EDIT -> PASTE or CONTROL + V on your keyboard. That way, you don't have to type the information into each tab again.
