  1. I am using this template and it is very easy to enter recipes but I am having trouble moving the recipe pages around as i want all soups and salads first. Is there an easy way to do this? Thanks.

  2. Hi, where can I found these galleries “On the Insert tab, the galleries include items that are designed to coordinate with the overall look of your document. You can use these galleries to insert tables, headers, footers, lists, cover pages, and other document building blocks.”. Can you please send me some screenshots. Thank you.

  3. This template is great. However, I am having trouble editing the image on the table of contents page. I have watched the video, but I am using Word for Mac 2011. When I click twice on the object group, it selects the outline shape, not the image object. In order to access that I must cut the outline object out. Then I can select the image and change it using the Shape settings. Once I’ve changed the image, I paste the outline shape back in, but it does not paste into the same position. It appears centered on the page instead of its original position, and no matter what I do it will not move or shift to another position on the page. I cannot figure out why it won’t allow me to nudge or drag it to another position. Do you have any advice or suggestions? Thanks.

    • Apologies for having difficulties in updating the TOC. It has been reported by few other users as well and this is because of a formatting bug in the template. We will try to update the template by fixing this formatting issue within the next few days. However, for the time being, try the following steps, these can be helpful for you:

      1. TOC in the template is laid out using a table. Simply select this table and delete the entire TOC from your existing template.

      2. After deleting the TOC, you can insert a complete new table of contents by going to the “References” tab in Microsoft Word. At the “References” tab, click on the “Table of Contents” (at the top-left) and insert the one you like to include in your recipe book.

      3. By following the above steps, you’ll have a new table of contents which you can easily update with a single mouse click. Please note that you’ll have to adjust a little bit of formatting in the newly inserted TOC. This can be a temp fix for your existing book. Otherwise, we’ll be updating the template very soon. Feel free to also try our other recipe templates, thank you.

  4. Hi and thank you for sharing this template. I am not sure how to add more pages/more recipes – I did watch the video to the end, but did not see you adding more pages beyond page 13. I know how to do that in PowerPoint (duplicate slide), yet not sure how to do it in Word. Can you help?

    • Hi, Thank you 🙂 You can add as many pages (or recipes) as you need. This is very simple. Copy the entire content of the last dummy recipe (including picture placeholder & text), then insert a new blank page at the end (after page 13) and then paste the copied content into that blank page. Doing this, you’ll get another copy of the last recipe. Let me know if you have more questions, thank you.

  5. Thank you for the great ideas I am doing a recipe book in A5 is there a template for this format and also I am not wanting to put pictures of the food in the book, their will be some black and white photos of utensils etc but this is for a small project and recipes people have supplied so I need a template that I can use without pics if possible.

    Thank you
