Icons for templates

Question

Posted (edited)

Hi, in the start screen there are icons for 4-track, guitar amps, etc.

If I want to put my own template into that folder, how do I make an icon for the template?

Thanks heaps!

Thanks, that was an interesting read, but by the end of the tread, it seemed there was still no answer?

Sorry, I never followed it to the very end. But it seems no one has the answer. Send an email to support@cakewalk.com, they should know. They are very friendly and helpful.

I just had a look - there is a solution.

Load one of the existing Start Screen templates.
Change it to the way you want it.
Use Save As to give it your name.
You MUST overwrite the original template.
You MUST type out the new name from scratch. No changing what is already there. You you must delete everything in the Filename box, and type in your new name.

Obviously these templates have something embedded in them which makes them work. So taking one, modifying it, and saving with a completely new name creates one of the "special" templates. And that is why you must delete the old name completely, so Cakewalk understands that you are not renaming, you are creating new.

I've also followed this template icon story.

What i dont get is...saving with a new name?

To overwrite a file you are forced to use the same name or else windows do not overwrite files.

Do i open the template a third time after overwriting and rename it then?

From the menu select File -> Save As

 

There is the old name highlighted in File name:

Press backspace to delete it, and type in the new name.

Press Enter. It is saved with the new name.

If Windows won't let you do that it means that you don't have Windows Access Rights to the folder. Try creating a new folder, move all the templates there, and then in Preferences Folder Locations point Cakewalk to the new location. Restart Cakewalk.

Ok.

The question was really about overwriting. It's ambiguous in the posts about start screen icons.

Please overwrite a file by saving it with a new name.
