ah yes I see it now within the thread but if you go back a step and view all the threads I don't see the search option.... where is it hiding?
I know you believe you understand what you think I said...but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not exactly what I meant.

Little 'spyglass' thingy (technical term) on the top menu by your right paw. :D

EDIT: Actually, not correct. That's like a web search or something. But just click on the main 'Forum' button and there is a search window just above the forum list. :cool:

ROFL ... aha ... so it is .... It is on the main forum but not within a sub forum or whatever the individual topics are called. Would be good to have it within topics as well.

Personally, I don't think the responses to the OP's question have been very informative.

Yeah, we get it that the included files are layouts, and you can open them from within RLM or double-click the file name to open it in same. But one might expect that the File menu might have an entry called 'New from Theme/Layout' as is seen in the HTML Editor, or similar choices in other CoffeeCup programs.

More to the point, I think would have been an answer that told her WHERE to unzip the template pack file so that it fits in logically with RLM Pro's program folder structure. I was surprised that there was (apparently) no direction from CC on where to put these layout files, nor did the unzip facility have the build-in smarts to point to an appropriate default location. When I opened the .zip file, it wanted to extract the files to my browser's Downloads folder -- that's not a very good spot to leave the layouts!

So I searched within the Responsive Layout Maker Pro folder tree and found 'Library', which has subfolders called Templates and Layouts. Since the downloaded file was a 'Template Pack', should they be placed in Templates? Or, because they're 'layouts', should they be placed in Layouts?

C'mon CC, you're usually better than this with download/installation instructions.

If you dbl click the downloaded themes they usually install themselves to the proper location for ya.:) All of CC's apps install the files you need access to in Documents/CoffeeCup Software/.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

I said they usually do but if they don't it looks to me you can find them or browse to the location I posted.:)

You are making an easy task far more complicated then it needs to be Cur. ;)

There is no set location that you need to place these in. These are simply saved layouts and can be placed in any folder you like that makes it easy for you to find them. You also do not "install them" either. Extract them from the zip file and put them on your desktop or documents folder or wherever. It is that easy. ;)

These are also not "themes" so you would never see a New From Theme/Layout in RLM. That is what The File Menu > New is for. Rembmer that these are just saved layouts that you open through the File Menu. I have the impression you may think you apply these layouts to something but that is not how the software works.

We have not documented this because to be honest, most people figure it out. ;)

Enjoy the software!
