Customizing Projects Created with Templates

When you open a new project file from a template, the project is a duplicate of the original
template. There’s nothing special about template-based projects, and they can be edited
and modified like any other project.

Most templates, especially those you create yourself, are intended to simplify the process
of creating titles and graphics for recurring projects. Examples include titles and lower
thirds for news and interview programs, graphics for magazine shows, and any repeating
program that requires graphics with a consistent look that must be updated from show
to show. Well-designed templates allow you to exchange key objects and edit the text
to update them for the next show in the series.

Changes you make to projects created from templates have no effect on the original
