    Article Summary

    Templates are powerful tools for centralizing and reusing logic. However, in certain instances, you may need to either delete a template or create a slightly modified version. This guide will explain how to copy templates for making minor adjustments and how to delete templates that are no longer needed.

    Copying Templates

    In certain situations, you may encounter a template that closely aligns with your needs but requires minor adjustments. Rather than building from scratch, you can duplicate the template and tailor it to your specific requirements.

    This guide explains how to create a new template by copying an existing one and making minor modifications.

    Step 1: Start with an existing template that can be used as a starting point.

    Step 2: Instead of starting from scratch, access the template in the Operator Library. 

    Step 3: Select the overflow menu for the template to make a Copy. 

    Step 4: Give the new template a unique name. 

    Step 5: Now, the new template is ready to modify. Add the template, modify it as needed, and finalize the template creation. 

    This process simplifies the creation of a new template by leveraging the work already done on an existing one.

    Deleting Templates

    After utilizing templates, you may find that some are no longer necessary. This guide will explain the process of deleting templates, including the potential impacts of their removal.

    This guide explains how to delete a template from the operator library. Remember, this action is permanent and will also affect associated operators.

    Step 1: Navigate to the operator library.

    Step 2: Locate the template to delete.

    Step 3: Click on the overflow option.

    Step 4: Choose delete. A warning will appear, indicating that this action is permanent. The template will no longer be available in the operator library, and all associated operators will return to the canvas.

    Step 5: Confirm the deletion to proceed. 

    After proceeding, all internal operators that were part of the template will be selected by default.

    To permanently remove these operators from the canvas:

    Step 6: Right-click on the selected operators and Choose remove from Canvas
