Changing the default templates in Arbortext Editor [On-Line Event]

In this webinar, I’ll show you how you can change the default templates in Arbortext Editor so they are more representative of the content that you actually write.

In the Arbortext Editor File->New dialog, you get the option to choose a Sample or Template for any doctype. These come out of the box, but can be changed. Custom doctypes can also create these to speed writers on their way.

Make your workflow process simple! Less work is good for everyone!

We’ve even included a bonus: How to compare documents!
