Hi,

I've looked at the videos and am now 'playing' with the app. Some great features, it was worth the wait!

One thing I'm missing is the ability to save as a template file. I regularly want to open a new blank document with all the settings ready so that I can just populate it with extra pages and content. I suppose I could create a single, master apub document then, when I begin, save it under a new name (as long as I remember!), but it would be great if we could create a template file to share with co-workers - then we would all be working to the same 'house-style'.

You could just enable the write protection option in Finder/Explorer for a regular publisher file that you want to use as a template, then it won't save over the original by accident.

Yes, that's a great idea, thanks for sharing.

I would also prefer templates over write-protection. Sadly, mac os handles write protection pretty strangely. E.g. you can't move a folder that has a protected file inside. It’s not like write-protection but more like a complete lock inside the file tree.

That doesn’t sound strange to me! Write protection implies that you can’t modify or delete the file; if you could move the containing folder you would be moving all the files in that folder to a new location, and ‘move to new location’ is equivalent to ‘copy to new location and then delete from original location’.
