Description

Exporting Job templates provides a convenient mechanism to save commonly used Job definitions from within an existing Job. This facilitates the setup of future Jobs, that are largely similar, by allowing Job template import during the Job creation process.

The Edit → Preferences... → Path → Job Preferences tab, Defaults → Template sets the default template.

Usage

  1. Select the Path → Path ExportTemplate.svg Export Template option from the menu.
  2. Select elements for inclusion from the Export Template configuration dialog.
  3. The template must be saved in the Macro directory or the Path directory, as configured in the Path Preferences.
  4. The template name must follow the pattern of job_<template name>.json. When shown in the selection combobox, the job_ prefix and the extension are left out.
  5. Press the OK button and save the template.
