How to Add a Content to Your Resume
Resume and Cover Letter templates come with a dummy text and predefine text styles. Each element has own text style. Text styles are available under the "Home" tab - it is called "Style Gallery".
- section title like "Work Experience", "Contact Education", etc. has a style called "Section Title". If you type some plain text and click this style from the "Style Gallery" it will be automatically transformed to look like other section titles.
Adding Your Content
The fastest way to add you content is to select the dummy text and start typing your own.
- select "position title here" and type the real one.
Spaces between sections are blank paragraphs (usually two or one paragraph) with selected "Blank" text style:
Adding a New Section
If you want to add a new section the best idea is to copy an existed one and change the text.
For example you want to add a new job position with a description. Copy the existing one and paste it in the place you want. This will copy all the font styles, so you will keep the design of the resume template.
- you want to have a skills list and a new one with your hobbies. Copy the existing skills list and paste it above or below the skills list (hobbies should be the last section in the resume). Now edit the section title and the content. If your new list does not have bullets, select it and choose "Bullet Skills" from the "Style Gallery".
Copying the Content From External Sources
You can also copy your text from an external document (like your old resume). But please note that when you directly copy a text from an external document (like Word) you also copy the whole font style. Then you need to select the copied text and choose the proper font style from predefined font styles from the "Style Gallery".
