        Fourteen years ago, I created Word templates to insert the special characters in French and Spanish. I was able to put these templates in the Startup folder so that each new document contained them.

        Now, 14 years later, I cannot do this. The templates will open in the current version of Word but I cannot apply them to each new document. I did change the templates to the dotm format. Is there something that I do not realize or is this no longer possible with the current version of Word? Thank you very much.

        I tried to attach the templates but it says that the file type is not allowed.

        Thank you very much.

        It would help us to know what the “current version of Word” is. (2010, 2013, 2016, 2019, C2R, 365?).

        ZIP them.
