Edit a Project Template?

Is it possible to edit a user-created Project Template? Now if I want to change something in a template I create a new file from the template, edit the file and then save that as a new template and delete the old one. Looking for a better way.

User Templates are just regular Dorico projects, stored in %APPDATA%\Steinberg\Dorico 5 on Windows or /Users/your-username/Library/Application Support/Steinberg/Dorico 5 on macOS

Open them directly, edit, save.

That’s what I was looking for. Thank you, @pianoleo

I do a lot of work starting from a template, then when I finished the thing I realise that I have changed a lot of things to the better. Is it necessary to save as a template with the same name as the old one after taking out all the contents, or is there a better way?

That’s the best way to do it, yes: save your updated template with the same name as the existing one, and the existing one will be overwritten.
