Using templates in Memo

Using templates in Memo

I keep templates of documents in MEMO that I can quickly edit for my immediate purposes. For example, I have templates for business letters, personal letters and for faxes (see Screen 4). I've also recreated the standard business forms I use regularly. I've used the line graphics and special characters described previously to create borders, boxes, shading, and simple graphics which I use time and time again.

Screen 4: This MEMO document uses line graphics and special characters to create a good-looking FAX template.

If you try this, remember to save any files that you edit under new file-names so that you don't corrupt the templates.

In order to prevent myself from corrupting the templates, I have used the DOS ATTRIB command to set the attributes of the template files to read-only (see the tip above). This way, I get a 'Error writing file' message if I inadvertently attempt to overwrite the document.
