We have another version of the template (Dissertation-1.2.2) that incorporates two very slight changes.
- The first change is the addition of a transliteration style (actually, this change was first made to version 1.2.1). If you will never need any transliteration or if you will need it only rarely, you may want to remove this style from the Quick Style Gallery. If that tutorial doesn’t make sense to you, then you may also want to view the introduction to the Quick Style Gallery or the one on creating a new style. On the other hand, if you will be using transliteration, then you will want to take a look at the post on setting up the transliteration keyboard with everything you need for Northwest Semitic languages.
- The second change sets the save options to embed the fonts in the document. This is required for ProQuest compliance and it makes the file much bigger (3 whopping MB!) but I don’t believe it will affect performance in Word. If it does, you may want to undo this until it’s time to convert to pdf or if you’re just writing a research paper.
Updating to the New Version
Remember, if you have a current document started that you want to convert to the current template version–don’t copy and paste into a new template. There should be some way to do this but I haven’t figured it out yet. Instead, here’s how to convert your document.
