    I will get the printout of the CV that I designed.

    I will design my CV by myself and then I will store it in a pen drive and take the pen drive to a cyber cafe to get its printout. "I will get the printout of the CV that I designed."

    This is just an imaginative situation that might happen in the future. when we speak about these situations, can we use the past tense? How I used in the last sentence? I am talking about a future happening "I will get the printout of the CV" and the thing that will have happened by then "that I designed."

    Please check.

    The answer to your question is, yes.

    You can use the past tense in an imaginary future situation.

    However, you can't say, 'How I used in the last sentence?' I think you've been told about this sort of thing before.

    I thought it was different from "how to" thats why I used but okay it is wrong in this way as well. Okay I won't use it.
