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.

Yes, I know I can mute or unmute any topic/thread. But like I just explained to Muse, the only way to actually "follow" a topic is to comment on it because topics don't have a subscribe button.

It's all good, though. I am getting the notifications now so should there be any new posts, I won't miss them :)

However, I have so much catching up to do, that'll keep me busy for quite a long time ;)

What Muse said! Plus if you will look directly over your post at the line that says showing 121-123 of 123 comments, on the right side it says Mute or Unmute, depending on how you set it. That is your follow button ^_^
Not that you will have missed any comments, as I haven't posted a new tutorial in some months, lol! I should get right on that.

Oh I know that. I am getting the notifications now. What I meant is that unless I comment on the thread, I won't get any notifications from it. As in, one cannot just follow (or subscribe, if you will) to a thread/topic. One has to comment on it and then the notifications start coming :)

SummerSolsticeGirl, you can follow any thread you like, via notifications on here. You just change your settings on your profile and you will get a notification every time someone comments here.
