Hi,
Is it possible to edit a template once it's saved? I've created a couple of templates that I like but that have some errors I'd like to correct.
Thanks for any replies.

Short answer: not directly.

The only way to edit templates with seamless lite is if you get in the habit of saving all your layers as a 'shape' before you publish. It's a little icon that IIRC looks like a pentagon with a plus sign. Then you can open that shape in a new template, size it, alter it and republish the updated version.

It's a little easier if you purchase Seamless Studio - you can simply download your original template .ssf from the site, open it, edit it and re upload it.

Unfortunately, that means you can't change your existing templates unless you made a shape backup. ...Trust me, I feel your pain. :)

I have been away for a little while... but just to chime in here, there is a post on using the shapes tool here in the blog that I did when we first launched it - there is a helpful video on using it: http://www.colourlovers.com/web/blog/2011/09/21/seamless-lite-new-features-custom-shapes-shape-galleries-how-to

Hope that helps Prax also had a great answer. :) m.

I'm beginning to wonder if anyone on the colour council even reads the contact forms, let alone these message boards. Can somebody please help me?!
