    • Hello, We DON’T impose any conditions, all our templates are completely free for personal use. However, we just request for simple attribution, you could find the details of these attribution requirements mentioned in the file “Important Notes” which is included in the download package, thank you.

  1. I want to use this template for a book that I wish to write. Is publishing my book with this template and selling it will come under commercial use or personal use. I am confused what will be treated as commercial usage and how it differs from personal use.

  2. This is a lovely template. However, I just tried to print out a few pages using it with my content and it would not print. Word simply hung up. I tried three times. Then, I copied a few pages from the template into a new Word file and it printed without a hitch. Why won’t the the file in the template print?

    • Sorry about that! The template prints perfectly fine. Did you add too many high-res pics in the template? This may be the reason of the hung up document. If there are many pictures then you can try compressing them before inserting them into the template. Another workaround would be to first convert the Word doc into a PDF file then print it. Thank you.

  3. I’ve downloaded “34 book manuscript Template for word. I’m using word 2007. I’ve unzipped the folder, now what do I do with it? I’ve already got my document in word. I’ve clicked on the file which opens in word. Now what?
    Sorry if this seems to silly but its my first attempt.

    • Thanks for downloading the template! If you have your content already written then you can copy them into the template. When copying the content, please make sure you use the “Use Destination Styles” option, thank you.
