Starting with a template instead of starting from scratch can bring a huge speed boost to your workflow. By using a template to create new documents, you conserve the time and effort spent recreating the wheel every time you want to do a task.
Templates can be any text file, pre-formatted document, Numbers worksheet, prototype or other set of information that you regularly use. We have included several pre-built templates in the app to help you start. Upload more or create your own, then drag and drop them onto “shelves” within the app to keep them organized. Templates are things of beauty and magic that can be used to save you a lot of time and make your computer do what it does best: quickly and painlessly automate repetitive tasks.
With TemplateBox you merely click the app icon in your menu bar, then drag a template from a shelf to Finder to pattern a new document based on it; Double click the icon and clone a new file that opens automatically.
TemplateBox can hold unlimited templates but shows only up to nine icons by design for simple and intuitive access. A template can be displayed as an icon or content preview.
One convenient Windows feature missing in OS X is the ability to quickly create a new text file in the current folder. Creating a new document in Mac OS X has traditionally entailed switching to the appropriate application, creating a new document, choosing the Save command, and then navigating - via the Save dialog - to the folder in which you want the new document to reside.
Luckily, TemplateBox makes it quite easy. Next time you want to create a new file in the current folder, all you need to do is click the icon on the menu bar and drag an icon to Finder - simple as that.
