One of the reasons to create a template is to create a new map already configured with the layers and plugins you need.
To create a new map from the template, click the main menu and choose the drop down menu under “New”
Choose “New from Template”
The templates are presented in a folder hierarchy. The hierarchy is the same as what you will find in the TrueNorth Templates folder.
You can click on a template and choose “Open” or double click on a template.
