Template settings not holding

I made a template with the user interface to my liking. I use key commands for everything so I took out the tools, quantize, and grid type menus from the top bar, and saved my template. But when I open up that template next time, it always has those items on the top bar again. How do I save this template properly so it remembers my interface settings?

Also, everytime I resave my template, it puts a number in front of that. i.e. cubase template 01. How can I prevent that?


This is not part of the project. This is global settings stored in the Preferences.

Thank you very much.
