Create content by Template

Question asked by richardeb on Feb 14, 2014

I'd like to create a new document by a Template. If I put a word document in the "node-template" folder I can create new word documents using this document as a template.

Now I'd like to add some placeholders/functionality to this word template. For example I'd like to write some of the metadata of a given folder(e.g. the parent folder) into the word file itself.
I'd like to build a form letter oder bulk letter functionality.

I already tried to add some template tags directly to the word template. Unfortunatly it seems that the template tags are not processed if I create a new document.

Is ist possible to build dynamic document templates or only static? Do you have a step by step guide?
