Duplicate web-templates?

Duplicate web-templates? - 01/05/11 04:22 AM

I have five templates/documents that each are pretty complex with a lot of variables and user-input fields. Now the customer wants a second version of those five, identical except from a slightly larger format.

Can I somehow copy the web-templates, perhaps inside the programs install folder, and get a copy with all the settings (names, formatting, order etc) that I can upload the slightly altered PrintShop Mail documents to?

There's no option for duplicating in the web-interface as far as I can see.

This could save me hours of tedious clicking...in this case and in countless others, where customers want two or more identical documents e.g. business cards with very small differences in the background graphics.

Depending on what changes you have to do, you may not need to create duplicates of the documents (which isn't possible unfortunately).

In your specific example for the business cards, you could create one background "image" for each different background you want to use, create a Collection out of them, and have the user that orders the business cards choose between which background they want from that collection.

I've used that method several times in other scenarios, but this time I need to change format (and allow to pick from a new collection with a the new size for background :-)
