Save projects as templates

You can save a project as a template. If you do so, you'll be able to create template-based projects, that is, the projects that are nearly identical to the template project.

The projects that you have saved as templates appear in the User-defined category in the Create a new project dialog.

Unnecessary templates can be deleted in the Manage Project Templates dialog.

Save a project as a template

  1. In the main menu, go to Tools | Save Project as Template.

  2. In the dialog that opens, name the template and provide a description. For the description, you can use the <b> and </b>, and <i> and </i> tags for formatting.

Templates are saved to the projectTemplates folder in the IDE configuration directory.
