What is the advantage of using a wizard to create a new document or project?

Answer: A wizard is a part of a program that helps you create a new document or project. The advantage of using a wizard, as opposed to just creating a new document, is that the wizard makes it easier to customize the document. A good wizard will ask you multiple questions about how you would like your document or project to look like. You simply answer the questions and, when you're finished, a new document or project is automatically created according to the options you chose.

Wizards are great at what they do, but they often don't allow you as much customization as you would like. Once you are familiar with the way a program works, creating a new document without a wizard, and then customizing it, may be a better choice.
