Create a Template

How Templates Are used

The template list in the New dialog contains the names of template files that are stored in a special Templates folder. This folder is located in the same directory as the program.

New templates should be saved to this folder so that they appear as choices in the template list. You can do this manually, or by using the Save As Template command.

To Create a Template

  • Create a new document which will become your template. Add all necessary staves, measures and instrument settings required to define your template.

  • Click on the FORTE Button and select from the drop down menu "Save as.../Save as template..."

  • In the Template dialog box, type a descriptive name for the new template.

  • The template will automatically be saved in the application's Templates folder as a read only file. This is located in the same directory as the application.
