Is it possible edit a .dot template file.

Post by frodeaux » 2015-06-03 12:01:45

Is it possible to edit (not create a new .rtf document with) a .dot template.
I know you can resave the newly created .rtf as a .dot file, but is there
a more direct way?

Yes, there is a way to open .dot template files for editing:

1. Show the standard file opening dialog using the menu File > Open.
2. Navigate to the template and select it in the file listing.
3. In the options area underneath, make sure the option "Open as New File" is not checkmarked.

I hope that helps.

If the .dot template is a Nisus New File, you can edit it by opening it by pressing the 'Open For Editing...' button in NWP Preferences>New File>Advanced.
