We have word templates stored in a document library. We want to be able to open the templates as if they were on a shared drive - where they open as a new document. Where they are stored now they just open to edit the template directly. I keep reading to use content types but this doesn't seem from my reading to satisfy the solution 100%.

Any help would be appreciated.
