Inserting Templates in a Project

There are several ways you can insert templates in your project.

Inserting a Template in the Stage View
Inserting a Template in the Thumbnails View
Inserting a Template in the Timeline View
Opening a Template as a Folder

Inserting a Template in the Stage View

You can insert layers and panel templates into the Stage view.

To insert a template in the Stage view:

  1. In the Thumbnails view, select the panel in which you want to insert the template.
  1. In the Library view, select the template you want to insert.
  1. Drag the selected template to the Stage view.

If you drag a template of an entire panel into a selected panel, it will add all the content of the template into the existing selected panel.

Inserting a Template in the Thumbnails View

You can insert layers and panel templates into the Thumbnails view.

To insert a template in the Thumbnails view:

  1. In the Thumbnails view, select the panel in which you want to insert the template.
  1. In the Library view, select the template you want to insert.
  1. Drag the selected template to the selected panel in the Thumbnails view.

Inserting a Template in the Timeline View

You can insert layers, panel, and sound clip templates into the Timeline view.

To insert a template in the Timeline view:

  1. In the Timeline view, select the panel in which you want to insert the template.
  1. In the Library view, select the template you want to insert.
  1. Drag the selected template to the selected panel in the Timeline view.

If you are inserting a sound clip template, drag the template into a sound layer in the Timeline view.

Opening a Template as a Folder

Since a template is like a scene, you can open the template’s folder and select elements inside it, such as specific drawings.

You may only want to import a few drawing layers instead of inserting the entire contents of a template. In this case, use the Open As Folder command to insert the items you want.

To open a template as a folder:

  1. In the Library view, select the template to open.
  1. Right-click the selection and select Open As Folder.

  1. In the Library list, explore the template’s folder to display its content.
