Using Templates

Hi, So my friend sent me a “template” to use. I stored it in the template folder on my drive, and am able to open it. However, somehow, when I am done recording, it saves over the template instead of allowing me to create, open a folder with the song’s name and save it there. Anyone know what I am doing wrong on the “save” process? Thanks

when he sent you a “template” I assume he sent you a project that you could use as a template?

you should open it, go to file → save as template

then close, open your template and start working
