Document outputs use a Microsoft Word template called PrintTemplate.docm to control the format and layout of the document. The template contains bookmarks, styles, document settings, and pre-defined text. Bookmarks are the mechanism used to insert and position the fields in the document and styles are used to format the fields. Document settings affect the page layout, such as paper size and margins. Pre-defined, or static, text can appear in several places in any template, usually the header and footers and the labels for the fields in the body of the document. The template also contains a toolbar which allows you to insert the desired bookmarks in the template you want to customize.
