Templates

Last updated Invalid Date

Templates are a foundation of Tipe in that every Document has to have a Template.

Creating Templates

You can create a Blank Document without a Template, but when you save it, Tipe will prompt you to associate it with a Template. Enter the name of the new Template and Save. The new Template will be in the Templates section of the Tipe dashboard and will be available for using with other Documents moving forward.

Use existing Templates

You can use some of the example Templates in Tipe or create your own, as above. When creating a new Document, you can use a Blank Document or a Template. To use a Template, choose one from the list of available Templates on the right in the following dialog:
