Perhaps this Q & A on doing a clean install in Windows *might* help (or worth trying, if not already tried)…

everytime you start a new project, lets say in Novel format, when you open it does it show you Novel format in the binder and explains how to use the format? I'm asking because I did a clean reinstall and the 1st time I tried it, I seen novel format and a brief description about it and it also showed all the character sketches and setting sketches, I went to create a new document after that one, and everything was blank. the novel format was just a blank page. and also all the ketches were blank, what am I doing wrong?

Having the same problem. Sheets (character, setting, front matter text) come up blank. As this thread was originally from the summer, was there ever a fix?

Note this was a clean install on a new computer running Win 10.

This is an intermittent problem by the way, sometimes the template text does appear. More often, it does not.

I am having the same problem in scrivener 1.9.0.0 for windows.

I would save more than half the time when I create a character sketch sheet choosing the default character template it just comes up blank.

Same thing for settings sketch.

Any solution for this?

Edit: This is a new short story project, and both template pages are blank. Are they not populated by default? I don't recall having to make my own templates in the past.

This is aggravating.

I just created a new short story today.... and once again no character or setting templates. They come up blank.

Just to make sure I opened up my short story from last month and I can make new character templates with the default content with no problem.

Anyone?

Is there a folder "Template Sheets" in the binder? Then you should get a new sheet using right-click in the binder (or the green [+] button in the toolbar).

Scrivener just makes a copy from your template to create a new item. So may be your project has a broken(empty) template file? You can add your own templates easily ...
