[quote="Lord Lightning"]The Sermon Template is in response to requests and it should be seen as a comprehensive place to put most of what you need to prepare a sermon. Obviously as you get more confident you will finesse the template itself to suit your own particular needs.

This goes in your folder Library folder as follows:

~Library>Application Support>Scrivener>ProjectTemplates

Then you just go into Scrivener and Open New Project. It should appear.

These are for Version 2 of Scrivener due out on Nov 1 2010.

---- As it is at the moment, the file is too big to upload - even zipped. So Keith or Ioa will have to pop it in place here ---- When things quieten down a bit. Keith has it so if you need it nag him - he's got nothing to do!!![/quote]

Any update on this template? I'd really like to take it for a spin.

Hi, when you say to install the Novel Writing Template in Library>Application Support>Scrivener etc... when I look in Library>Application Support> there is no Scrivener Folder... what have I done?

The best way to install templates is to just use the `Manage...` button in the template chooser. No need to worry about library folders and all that.

You want the Library under your username, so Users/YourUserName/Library/Application Support/Scrivener/ProjectTemplates. If there's no ProjectTemplates folder there, just create one (it doesn't get created until you import new templates).

You can also just create a new project in Scrivener and from the template-chooser dialogue select the "Options" button and then "Import Templates..." which will let you choose the file from your hard drive and will dump it into your Application Support folder etc. You can then delete the original download.

EDIT: Yes, what Ioa said. ;)

[quote="Lord Lightning"]Cyril, now that v2 is out and things are a tiny bit quieter why not ask Keith or Ioa to put it up for you. I sent it to Keith so it is lying around somewhere but it is very big and may need properly zipping up for the forum.[/quote]

I know I'd love to give this template a whirl, as well.

I don't give a hoot about about templates - I need flexibility to create my own.

You do. Write something. Then go File, Save As Template.
