You might want to read this post :


I've already created my own templates, but they are very simple. I mean I just selected instruments from VST instruments because I compose for the recorder most essentially. I work on a Macbook Pro.

1.Open Notion and choose "New score"
2. Select as many instruments as you want, or if you're like me, any "VST instrument" you need
3. Hold the Command key and T to leave the score configuration page.
4. Hold both the Shift key, the Command key and S to save your file. Give it a name with a number above 18, for instance : 19 Renaissance Consort, and save it where you can easily get access to it. In my case : the Desktop. The number is optional but it will be easier to find your file in the templates menu.
5. Go to the Application folder, search for Notion 6 (or whatever version). Right click it and choose show package contents.
6. Double-click the contents folder. Search for the Ressources folder and double-click it.
7. Search for the Templates folder and double-click it.
8. Place the file you have just saved on your desktop in the Templates folder.
9. If you return to Notion and choose New from templates, you will realize that the file you've just added is not showing. So quit Notion and start the software again.
10. As you start again Notion, close the popping window and go to File, New from templates. Your newly created template should be there, at the end of the list, since it's been saved with number 19 (there are indeed 18 templates in my folder. For some reason, it may vary for you).

As I wrote, it's a quite simple template, but you might want to play around with the reverb or the mixer parameters as well as your own VSTs' settings too.

I hope it helped.

I did the following on Windows 10 64-bit. The procedure COULD be modified for other supported Windows versions and Notion versions besides Notion 6. My version is Notion 6.6 64-bit. Your mileage may vary.

1. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Notion 6\Support
2. Right click on the Templates folder, then go to Properties
3. Click on the Security tab.
4. Next to "To change permissions, click Edit", click on the Edit button with the shield.
NOTE: If you don't have the proper permissions under the Windows user you are currently logged in as, you may not get passed this part.
5. Find the group called Users in the list called "Group or user names" and click on it.
6. Place a check in the checkbox labeled Modify. Click Apply, then click OK.
7. Click OK to exit Templates Properties
8. Launch Notion. If you are already in Notion, close out and go back in. Create the score the way you want it.
9. Click File > Save As...
10. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Notion 6\Support\Templates
11. Create a filename for your template. Adding a number to the beginning of the filename is not required that I can tell, but I assume it's used to keep the templates list somewhat organized.
12. Save your file.
13. Exit Notion, then launch it again.
14. Click File > New from Template. You should see the template you created listed there along with all of the others.

Performing this procedure also allows you to DELETE files from this folder as well as create them. Proceed at your own risk: take a back up of the folder (copy it somewhere else, or use your favorite backup software in case you need to restore the files).

These directions are not anything official, and I take no responsibility for what you do to your own machine.
