Building blocks are pre-formatted elements that are found in the Quick Part gallery of a template. You can save just about anything as a building block – tables, charts, text, images, etc. We have created them for landscape pages, cover pages, logos and icons, and more. Inserting building blocks into a Word document is easy. Here’s how:
- Place your cursor on the page where you want the building block to appear.
- Select the Insert tab.
- In the Text group, click the down arrow on the Quick Parts gallery.
- Locate and click on the building block you need.
- The building block appears where you placed the cursor in your document.
You can move and/or edit a building block after insertion. For example, you can insert more rows or columns into a table or change the text in a breakout box or disclaimer. This will not change the original building block in the Quick Part gallery.
