Copy a Template

You may also copy templates. After selecting a source project (this can also be the same project) you can select one or more templates to copy. If you select just one template to copy you may also enter a new name for the template. Otherwise, the template name is simply copied without any change.


Copy a template

If you have already a template with the same name you will be asked to overwrite the existing template(s). To prevent your templates from being overwritten, rename or copy your templates first.
