The template is a predefined styled document that can be customized further. Templates help to create some professional and formal documents. While creating documents sometimes we need copies of specific parts of documents such as a few pre-defined styles, images, tag lines, etc.

A template can be created with some predefined text and other parts. A template saves the effort and time to format documents as well as frequently used content.

Some popular examples of templates are invitation cards, resumes, certificates, reports etc. A template contains all the features that a normal document has. It can have text, graphics, and styles such as headings, text formats, page numbers, headers, and footers.

A template has the same kind of formatting, content segregation, and appearance. In Libre Office Writer, all documents are based on templates. If no template is specified then Libre Office Writer uses the default template as a blank document template.

To know the template associated with a document, click on File –> Properties option. It will open a properties dialog box. Here template is showing blank because I have used the default template.
