Using Custom Templates

One of the strengths of Doc-To-Help is the ability to use custom templates. For most authors, the default templates supplied with Doc-To-Help should be sufficient for most applications, but in some cases it may be necessary to use a customized template. Generally, it is a good practice to store these custom templates with the associated project. In the past, storing a template with the project could be an issue when moving the project because the template files were stored with an absolute path (full path to template directory). Now all template files are stored using a relative path, no matter where you move the project, the templates associations remain intact.

Note: If the template being used by a target is stored in both the project directory and the Word template directory, the template in the project directory will be used by default.
