 +====== Create a Template ======
 +Templates allows you to create projects with common pages (''​.dg5''​ files), [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​panels_and_menus:​widget_palette|widget libraries]],​ and [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​panels_and_menus:​favorites_popup|favorites]]. Because a template has ''​.dg5''​ files, templates also let you share [[dglux5_wiki:​widgets_and_property_inspector:​home|components]],​ [[dglux5_wiki:​widgets_and_property_inspector:​property_inspector:​home|properties]],​ [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​projects_and_files:​project_directories#​assets|assets]],​ and [[dglux5_wiki:​dataflow:​home|dataflow]] across projects.
 +
 +To create a new template:
 +  - [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​projects_and_files:​create_project|Create]] ​ or [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​projects_and_files:​open_project|open]] a project.
 +  - Customize the project in any of the following ways:
 +    * [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​projects_and_files:​create_project|Create]] or [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​projects_and_files:​import_dg5|import]] any [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​projects_and_files:​about_dg5|pages]] (''​.dg5''​ files) that you want to appear in the template.
 +    * Create or import any [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​panels_and_menus:​widget_palette|widget libraries]] for which you want the [[dglux5_wiki:​widgets_and_property_inspector:​essentials:​home|widgets]] and [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​panels_and_menus:​favorites_popup|favorites]] to appear in the template.
 +    * Delete any [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​projects_and_files:​about_dg5|pages]],​ [[dglux5_wiki:​widgets_and_property_inspector:​essentials:​home|components]],​ [[dglux5_wiki:​widgets_and_property_inspector:​property_inspector:​home|properties]],​ [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​projects_and_files:​project_directories#​assets|assets]], ​ [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​panels_and_menus:​widget_palette|libraries]],​ or [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​panels_and_menus:​favorites_popup|favorites]] that you don't want to retain in the template.
 +    * Set [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​grid_and_snapping:​home|Snapping]] preferences.
 +  - <​WRAP>​Select **Project** > **Project Properties**.
