ODF Templates For [, Turabian, misc]

For quite some time now, I have been creating ODF templates.

Eugene T.S. Wong's Templates

The only template that I did not create is the Turabian template. I just downloaded it, and modified the properties, so that it would work with the templates web site.

Keep reading for more information.

Afterwards, be sure to check out that blog label, "templates", where you will find more discoveries on how to make use of templates.

I'm quite fascinated by how well the endeavour worked. I'm surprised by the popularity of the templates. For example, the pocket book sized template was downloaded over 1300 times.

I finally finished the paperback book cover templates, and now I would like to move on to the other book cover templates, or the templates. Completing the paperback templates was a huge project. I made so many of them, that I managed to put on a whole new tag in the left column.

I'm quite proud of the ISO shaped book templates for A4 & A5 paper. They include the correct envelop, and the matching book cover template is available.

I remember when 1 of my templates first got 2 high ratings of 5 stars. I thought that I was misreading that. I had to do a double take and stare at the screen for a few moments. :^D

In a weird sort of way, it taught me about marketing and sales. Even though I tried to focus on the technical features of the template, I often thought about what the users would want, and became excited when they started downloading it. Even now, I still try to get a feel for my templates' popularity.

It just shows that OO.o and other ODF software is ready for serious work.

If you have any suggestions, then please let me know.


  1. Why would anyone use Open Office when they could use Microsoft word? :P

  2. :^D ;^P How dare you say that?!? Whose side are you on? ;^p

  3. Do you actually use software?
