It would be great to have the ability to save a score as a template. During the process, only the setup info would be stored into the new template.

You can just save a blank score to C:\Program Files\Notion 5\Support\Templates

This is not in the user guide because it is a "do at your own risk" type of thing and as such is not recommended . . . :o

The reason is that when you install an update to NOTION this folder is overwritten, and anything custom you copied to it will be gone . . .

The preferred strategy is to keep your custom user-defined "template" projects in a separate folder, or at least to keep a copy of them in a separate folder . . .

On the Mac, the templates are stored in a folder which is part of the application "package", and you can copy custom user-defined templates to that folder if you follow the naming convention, which is to preface the filename with an integer to tell NOTION where to put the item in the menu list, with the idea being to look at the numbers for existing templates and then to use the next higher integer, but again there is the same problem with being overwritten when there is an update. However, if you make a mistake modifying the application "package", there is no telling what will happen, so even when you know how to do this, it is a bit "iffy" . . .

THOUGHTS

You can do it this way--and I do it on the Mac this way every once in a while--but if there is an update to NOTION and your custom user-defined templates disappear, then now you know why . . .

I keep copies in a separate folder that does not get overwritten, but it is convenient to have custom user-defined templates in the NOTION menu list . . .

Lots of FUN! :)

My backup process keeps them safe, but a more convenient way is to do as you suggest and use a non-Notion folder for custom templates.

It would be nice if they could replace the defaults in the start screen ...
