 +===== Copy a Template: Detailed Steps =====
 +
 +If you want to create a new template based on a previous template that has aspects that you would like to copy, then you should start from that existing template instead of from a default template.
 +
 +1. Choose: File|Open|Template
 +
 +{{:mmfileopentpl.jpg?300|}} 
 +
 +2. Select the appropriate template folder and click <Open> (or double-click on the folder)
 +
 +{{:mmfileopentplnav.jpg?300|}}
 +
 +3. Select the template you want to copy and click <Open> (or double-click on the filename)
 +
 +{{:mmfileopentplnavwork.jpg?300|}} 
 +
 +4. Save the template that opens as a new file using: File|Save As ...
 +
 +Give the new file an explanatory name; begin with the name of the Entity and "template" (e.g., Manifestation template.LP); you could also include the name of the copied template, to group similar templates.
 +
 +You can use customized templates to add constant data to records for a particular type of entity, e.g., large print data for all large print manifesations; or to a particular batch of records, e.g., manifestation records sharing the same publisher.
