Using Building Blocks to Create a Cover Page

Building Blocks is cool new feature we have added in Office 2007. They enable users to reuse content easily in order to help you put together great looking documents. Essentially parts of a document that can saved in the Building Blocks organizer and then inserted into other documents, quickly and easily.

Office 2007 provides a collection of common building blocks presented in visual galleries. All building block galleries use a rich thumbnail image to preview content before inserting it, like many other features in Office. But each gallery is also a feature in its own right, for example, cover pages will insert at the beginning of the document as expected, while headers go in the document header area and textboxes are inserted in the page the cursor is in.
