  3. Click Control+C (PC) or Command+C (Mac) to copy the template.
  4. In your own dissertation or thesis draft, place your cursor at the top of the page where you would like the template to appear and right-click (PC) or Control+click (Mac).
  5. This will open the Edit menu. From the Paste options, choose Keep Source Formatting. (Hovering over each paste icon if you're not sure which is the Keep Source Formatting icon.)
