Custom Word Templates

Is it possible to create one’s own custom manuscript templates for Microsoft Word and if so how do I do that (Endnote does not include the Predefined Manuscript Template that I need for my work)?


It is my understanding that you can try to edit an existing (.dot) template, but that depending on what you do, it may disable the wizard.  I find the templates difficult to use and a bit inflexible.  Much easier to look at author instructions and go from there!  (besides, I rarely know where something is going, when I start to write…)
