Description peter josvai 2019-02-07 06:13:01 UTC
a suggestion, in short:


instead of:
"File / New / Templates"

"File / New / New from Template"

"File / Templates":

instead of:

Open Template
Save as Template
Manage Templates


New from Template
Save document as Template
Open Template for Editing
Manage Templates


Manage Templates window, right click on template:

instead of:

Save as Default


New Document from this *
Edit this ** 
Make this Default

// note:
 * it is clear that "this" is a template
** it is clear that "this" is a template, also that "Edit" refers to "this" (as it is a context menu), yet if you use "this" in one, you should use it in the other, too...
