Edit an existing temlate (.dotx)
If I have an existing template (.dotx) that was created using "Template Designing" mode, how can I further edit that template once it has been saved and closed?
Currently if I open the .dotx file then I am put into "Document Authoring" mode so cannot edit and re-create the smart parts.
Here is an example of the workflow that I am using:-
1, Open a new word document Word4TFS is in "Template Designing" mode
2, Create some content for the different work items that I want (e.g. Feature, User Story, Task) using the process template
3, Use the "Create Smart Parts --> Selecion based" to create the actual smart parts
4, Save the document as a .dotx
... some time later I realise that I need to add a field to one of the smart parts (e.g. "Priority" needs adding to the "Feature" part)
5, Open the .dotx file BUT Word4TFS is not in "Document authoring" mode so I cannot update any of the smart parts
Unless I can achieve this is looks like I only get one attempt at creating the smart parts.
