RPE 2.1 introduces a new feature of importing a MS Word template to build a RPE template. Prototype the document in a Microsoft Word template, which a new user is mostly familiar with, and then import it in RPE Studio to create a RPE template out of it.

Drag and drop a word template on to a RPE Studio editor to create a RPE template. Alternatively, you could use Template -> Import Word Template menu option.
One could import a word template within a particular element of an existing template by dropping it with in the element.
As Microsoft word document is very vast in terms of elements and formatting supported. Importing a word document in RPE is limited to the basic elements and formatting.
- If the word template is a cover page like company name, logo, etc, I suggest to use it as a style sheet in the document specification of the Word or PDF output format.
- Do not use a large document with repeated information. For example, remove repeating paragraphs, limit table to couple of rows and delete recurring list items retaining just a few for the template structure.
