Why doesn’t my template look the same as the example?

Fonts: You’ll need to install all the required fonts (please check the font guide pdf in your download bundle) into your computer before opening the file in word in order for the templates to display properly.

Software: All of our templates are designed to work exclusively on Microsoft Word for Mac or Windows. Please do not use different software such as OpenOffice, Pages, Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Word Online, Google Docs, etc, to edit your docx files. These do not share the same features and tools used in Microsoft Word to create the template.

If you don’t have the software, head to the Office website for a free trial of the program: https://products.office.com/en-au/try
