Copy Project-level Office Document Templates

In cases where you want to create a project-level Office Document Template similar to one that exists in the project with slight changes, you can copy the existing Project Template and make alterations as needed.

To copy project-level Office Document Templates in the Storyteller Administration Portal, users must have the "Manage Project Configuration" privilege in their Project Administrator Role. For more information on Project Administrator Roles, see the Manage Project Administrator Roles article.

To copy a project-level Office Document Template for one of your Storyteller projects:

  1. In the Storyteller Administration Portal, click Projects and select the project with the project-level Office Document Template you want to copy.
    For information on how to access the Admin Portal, see the About the Administration Portal article.
  2. Under Projects, click Advanced Settings and select Project Templates.
  3. On the Project Templates page, click the template you want to copy.
  4. Click Copy at the bottom of the page.
  5. Click the template name in the header and re-name the template as needed.
  6. You can edit the settings for the copied template by selecting or clearing the corresponding checkboxes or editing the values in the following fields:
    1. Include Files — If selected, the generated document is packaged in a .zip file with all associated documents and attachments in the artifact.
    2. Rich Text Formatting — If selected, any rich text formatting in Storyteller is preserved in the generated document.
    3. Font Size Scale — Edit the percentage you want to scale font size to within rich text fields in the generated document.
      Font size scale must be a whole number between 50 and 500 percent.

    5. Include Closed Discussions — If selected, closed discussions are included in the generated document.
    6. Attach Source Data to Document Output — If selected, the generated document is packaged in a .zip file with the project XML data that was used to generate the document.
      The project XML data can be useful if:
      • you want to author a template using data and image references from your project
      • you are debugging a problem with the template you are using
      • you want to provide Blueprint support with the project XML data that generated the template
