Hi all

I recently looked for a way to share my custom created Layouts with other team members. Unfortunately I couldn't find the template here:
%appdata%\Microsoft\Templates

Instead, it was on network drive (in our case mapped to U:\Vorlagen). If you do not find your Word4TFSSystemTemplate.dotx template in the default folder, you can find the folder by doing the following steps:
  1. Open Microsoft Word
  2. In the ribbon section, click 'FILE'
  3. In the menu on the left side, click 'Options'
  4. The Options dialog opens. In the menu on the left side, click 'Advanced'
  5. Scroll down to 'General' and click the button 'File Locations...'
  6. In the list, look for 'User templates'. This is the folder where the Word4TFSSystemTemplate.dotx template file is located
I hope this helps for those who are also looking for the Word4TFSSystemTemplate.dotx file.
