There are two ways to manage the templates for a job.
Insert templates into the job. They will be stored in the .acs file along with all the other data.
Use this dialog box to Insert, Delete and Edit templates.
You can store the templates in another .acs file, thus the templates can be used by many jobs. You can easily organise a .acs file containing templates for each type of job, urban, rural etc.
Set the file where the templates for this job are stored in Job Settings - CS Template File.
When the job is loaded, the program will read the templates from that file. You can then add extra templates, edit tem and they will be saved automatically when you save the job, or save them back to that file using the Save Templates button. You can also save the templates to another .acs file (Save As....)
Warning! A Road Templates file should not contain any roads or geom or topo information. It will be erased when the templates are updated.
There are two types of templates, ‘File’ templates are read/written to the templates file (if specified). ‘Job’ templates will be saved in the actual job. You can change a template from ‘File’ to ‘job’ in the template properties.
