With the Template Editor open, the user can now view the list of templates in BestNotes.
To edit a template:
- Click the template title in the selection pane found in the upper right hand corner.
- Click the edit button found below the template selection pane.
To create a new template:
- Click Create New Template. This will open a blank untitled template
- Add a title in the blank field in the upper right hand corner of the screen
The selected template now appears in the main editing pane on the left side of the template editor. With the selected template open, the user can begin editing.
The template editor has some of the same basic functionality as any word processing program. The user has the ability to select text size and make text bold, italicized, or underlined. Text can be aligned to the right, left, or center. The user can add bullets or numbers and create indents. Tables and horizontal lines can be added as well.

A template provides the structure for a document by assigning the location where key text and their corresponding AutoNote collections will appear.
||When recreating an existing document in the template editor, begin by identifying the sections of the document that could be made into AutoNotes (any section where a predefined set of responses exist) then take the remainder of the document and use it to create an outline in the template editor.|
After typing in the outline of the template, begin adding AutoNote collections. There are two scenarios associated with adding an AutoNote collection to a template. The first is creating and adding an AutoNote collection to the template the second is adding an AutoNote collection that already exists to the template.
||DO NOT copy and paste digital information (Microsoft Word, Website, PDF, etc.) into a template. This will break the template. First, try copying the information from the document into the BestNotes Notepad, then from Notepad into the template builder.|
