The Template Editor is a tool included with the Developer that provides an interface that enables you to easily edit the template.xml file to customize a template. The interface has several sections, each of which allows you to modify different parts of the template. You can change existing text elements or add text, or localize the text into any language. In addition, you can preview the results of your changes immediately.
You can launch the Template Editor from the Windows Start menu. The installation process creates a shortcut in the same program group as the Developer.
