Drafting IEC publications

 

 

The IEC template

The IEC template (iecstd.dotm) is the basis for the formatting and layout of all IEC publications. It contains the styles, boilerplate texts and automation features for IEC publications.

 

Important: To use the IEC template, its styles and functionalities, authors must save it once on their computers and then attach it to every working document.

 

A document without the template attached will not benefit from its features.

 

Note: For IEV documents (IEC 60050), please use the template IEV.dot instead.

 

Working with the template

1. Download the file iecstd.dotm below and save it in Word's Templates folder on your computer.

2. Attach the template to your working document.

3. Use the template's styles and features in MS Word.
