1. Start with a fresh, new document in any Adobe Creative Suite application.
2. Locate the File Info option under the File menu and enter the information you want in the template.
3. Save the template. In CS through CS3, go to the upper right flyout (circle with arrow), select save and give the template a memorable name.

In CS4, click on the downward-pointing arrow beside the Import/Export button in the bottom right of the File Info dialogue, choose Export from the resulting menu, give it a memorable name and choose Save.

4. Cancel File Info.
5. Discard the new document.
