Working with templates
Templates are starting points for creating your own documents. A template can contain any type of content—from basic symbols and links to fully developed ideas and imported graphics and videos. Inspiration comes with over 100 templates to help you create your own documents. In addition, you have access to even more templates online. When you open a template, you save it as a new document so the template itself remains unchanged.
You can create custom templates that contain any type of content—from simple diagrams to complex outlines to detailed mind maps. Teachers often create their own templates to use as a starting point for a special project or assignment.
In addition to content, a template contains default settings that control how the template looks, transfers and prints, including:
•The libraries that appear on the Symbols palette
•The custom libraries available with the template
•Access to the online symbol collection for symbol searches
•Default formatting for text and objects
•Default settings for transferring the template to a word processor
•Default settings for printing the template
