Where can I find the templates?

V11 and Earlier

The templates are found in the Designs Gallery (or in v10 & v11 in both the Designs Gallery and the Content Catalog).

Note  in current versions the free trial contains a selection of editable templates which are automatically downloaded when you open the Designs Gallery (click the Get Designs button in any trial version prior to version 6).  Additionally, previews of the full set of templates are provided in the trial, these can't be edited and are provided to show you the full template set that you will get when you purchase. Editable templates are in the blue folders, thumbnails-only in the red folders.

Once you have purchased the product, installed and unlocked the trial,  the Designs Gallery will update and the content will be immediately available to open without further installation. Simply double click a thumbnail in the Designs Gallery, or drag and drop the template into your open document.

[Note: In version 7, you need to click on the 'download templates' option in the help menu to download the full set of templates, in later versions it happens automatically].


V12 (2016) and later

The templates are found in the Online Content Catalog but can be downloaded to the Local Designs Gallery. Open the Online Content Catalog by clicking on any of the 'More Online' links in the Local Designs Gallery, or via the Insert Menu, or shortcut Shift + Alt + I.

Note the free trial contains only a small selection of editable templates.  Additionally, previews of the full set of templates are provided in the trial, these can't be edited and are provided to show you the full template set that you will get when you purchase. In the Content Catalog editable files are shown in White and marked as free examples, thumbnail-only files are shown in grey.

Once you have purchased the product, installed and unlocked the trial, the Content Catalog will update and the content will be immediately available to use without further installation. Simply click a thumbnail in the Content Catalog and select Open or Import as appropriate.

The Local Designs Gallery will only show content that you have already used. But you can download additional content from the Online Content Catalog by right clicking on the folder in the Designs Gallery and selecting Download.
