Hi Manuel,

When you are going to save it you need to click at "Save As" and choose Word 97-2003 Template
then it will save it as a templatename.DOT file
And if you want it to show you need to save the template in

* Windows 2000 & XP : C:\Documents and Settings\[Your user name]\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\IR
* Windows 98 & ME : C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\IR
* Windows NT4 : C:\WinNT\Profiles\[Your user name]\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\IR
* Windows Vista : C:\Users\[Your user name]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates\IR

depending on your OS.

you can have some more information at http://flir.custhelp.com you can even download updates and manuals there.

You could just start with a blank Word document and put in the elements you want. I usually use a header with the machine name and other necessary info, an IR image at the top, and a white light digital image below that. Word lets you enter text boxes, etc. (I would rather use a genuine layout program, like Publisher. But Reporter only works within Word.)
When you have something you like, save it with a name like "Template" and just open and modify it as needed.
