Templates on Office 2004 for Mac

June 28, 2006

A lot of people ask me how to use templates from the Microsoft Office Online site with Office 2004 for Mac. In this post, I’ll run through some steps for doing this.

First things first. If you didn’t know it already, we have a number (437 to be exact) of Office for Mac templates available on our Mactopia website. These templates are available here. The templates on this site are either uncompressed or are compressed in ZIP format, so it’s easy to download and use them with Office 2004 for Mac. To use one of these templates, just download it to your local machine, uncompress it like any other download you might get, and copy it to your My Templates folder located in the Microsoft Office 2004:Templates folder. After you do this, you’ll find the templates listed in your Project Gallery and you’re ready to create new documents based on these templates.

One of the benefits to using the Mactopia templates is that we’ve tested them with Office 2004 for Mac. (If you find one that doesn’t work, send me an e-mail.)

Now, I’m going to tell you how to use templates from the Microsoft Office Online site from the Mac, keeping in mind that these templates have not been tested with Office 2004 for Mac.

These templates are in CAB format, so they’ll need to be decompressed before you can use them on your Mac. You have a couple of choices here. The easiest thing to do is to download a copy of StuffIt expander from SmithMicro. After you install StuffIt, and you download a CAB file from the Microsoft Office Online Templates section, you should be able to open the context menu on the CAB file and choose Open With. Choose StuffIt Expander from the list and your template should appear in the same folder as the CAB file. At this point I suggest renaming the extracted template to something you can recognize (if it’s not already) and then copy it to your My Templates folder as described above.

There are a couple of different alternatives to using StuffIt. One of them is the command line tool cabestract, written by Stuart Caie. This tool works very well if you’re comfortable with using Terminal.

In the screen below, you can see my My Templates section in the Project Gallery populated with a few of the templates I’ve downloaded from Mactopia and the Microsoft Office Online sites. Leave a comment and let me know if you run into any problems with these instructions and I’ll update them accordingly. Thanks!
