RU Corporate Identity Information

Starting September 1, 2004, a new corporate identity has been introduced in which the name and logo of the university changed, but also the layout of all printed material. For MS-Word the UCI developed formats and manuals. For LaTeX C&CZ developed a new letter layout.

RU Letter Layout for Word, new version (4.1.) of Dec 1, 2005

Attach the network disk: \\pluri\xpsoftware (possibly \\admiraal\xpsoftware from within dbf.kun.nl) in the following way:

Windows Explorer -> Tools -> Map Network Drive. Drive: S (or some other, free drive letter). Folder: \\pluri\xpsoftware. Check "Reconnect at logon".

Open the network disk that you just attached.

In the folder RU-Huisstijl you can find three manuals supplied by the UCI: An Installation Manual, a User Manual and a Conversion Manual. The last one is only needed if one has worked with an earlier version of the templates.

Carefully read both (Dutch) manuals. The User Manual specifically expands on the different templates that are offered. Below is a short explanation how to make these templates work for yourself.

In the folder RU-Huisstijlyou can find 9 .dot files and two .ini files.

RU_Badge.dot            RU_Etiket_Large.dot     RU_Settings.ini
RU_Brief.dot            RU_Fax.dot              RU_VisiteKaartje.dot
RU_COG.dot              RU_Huisstijl.dot        RU_WithCompliments.dot
RU_Brief_MM.dot         RU_User_Settings.ini

To use the Corporate Identity for a specific department, one has to copy the files to a place where the user can write them. This could be one's own home-directory (H-disk), a directory on a network disk that can be written by somebody from the department or a directory on the local PC.

Just one one has to do the following (see the Installation Manual, Per User Settings, page 3): Open in Word an empty file, select in the drop-down menu: Tools -> Templates and Add-Ins -> Add. Browse to the directory where RU_Huisstijl.dot has been copied to. Select the file RU_Huisstijl.dot.

After that one has to exit Word. This makes sure that the templates can find the file RU_Settings.ini, in which address information etc. is stored. Is is essential that the file RU_Settings.ini can be found in the same folder as where RU_Huisstijl.dot can be found.

If the latest step doesn't work, the most probable cause is that the template Security settings does not allow unsigned macros. In that case open in Word Tools -> Macro -> Security and choose Average. Then every time a template file is used, a dialog box will appear that asks explicitly if you want to turn on the macros or not.

New in this version is that the macro's have been signed with a UCI certificate. That makes it possible to add once and for all this certificate to the list of trusted certificates, after which the Macro security can be switched back to high, this also gets rid of the always appearing dialog box. To add the certificate: in the dialog box click "Details" and in the next dialog click "View Certificate" and after that "Install Certificate". After that click a few times "Next" in the wizard "Import Certificate". Finally check in Macro security "Always trust this source". After that Macro security can be switched back to high.

Next do Step 4 op the Installation Manual: open RU_COG.dot and choose from the menu item RU Huisstijl the option Edit User Ini Folder, enter the complete path to the directory where you copied the files in the dialog, press wijzigen and then close this dialog. After this you can fill in the address of the department in question, these will be saved into the file RU_User_Settings.ini in the directory you have just entered.

From this point onwards you can use the User Manual. The personal profiles that you make are saved in RU_User_Settings.ini, so be careful with this file.
