Clarify 2DOCX (Word) Templates IntroductionHow is a DOCX template structured?

How is a DOCX template structured?

Here is the structure of a DOCX template folder.

  1. The root folder is the name that will appear in Clarify.
  2. The DOCX file that will be used for exporting your Clarify documents goes in the ./Content/article folder. The name of the DOCX file is irrelevant. All that matters is that it have a .docx extension.
  3. A DOCX template can also have a ./Content/manual folder. This is not used in Clarify but can be present since Clarify DOCX templates use the same format as ScreenSteps DOCX templates.

hello,
is this article still valid?
on OSX 10.10.5 Clarify 2.0.5 build 4 is folder empty and added templates are not recognised.

@brano - Yes, the article is still valid. The folder is empty by default as you haven't installed any custom templates. I would suggest sending a screenshot of what you added to the folder to support@screensteps.com. My guess is that you just need to modify the folder structure as Clarify isn't find the actual .docx file in the right place.

@RF Try selecting the [[SCREENSTEPS_ARTICLE]] text in your document and removing all styles from it. I've seen this before when a style gets applied to part of the text and the text ends up being split up into multiple segments internally within the Word file.
