Active Library: this button accesses your Active Library, which consists of fully editable templates that
you have copied from the Read Only Library. Use this button to switch between templates.
Save: this button saves your template. Normally, Swiftpage will save your template as you go, but
clicking this button before you exit Swiftpage guarantees that your work is saved.
Save As: click this button to make a copy of the current template under a new name. If you like the
design of one of your templates and want to edit the text—but want to keep the original template as
well—use the Save As button to make an exact copy of the template for editing.
Rename: use this button to rename the current active template.
Delete: this button will give you the option to delete a template from your active library.
Restore: when you click this button, you restore the template to the last time it was saved. The point
of the last save may be the last time you clicked the Save button on the Template Library tab, or it may
be the last time Swiftpage automatically saved the template. (I think it goes back to the last official
save) In some cases, using the Restore button can help you recover lost information. In other cases, if
you have done more work since the template was last saved, you may lose work by clicking Restore.
The Restore button is, generally, therefore only used in the case of broken templates (i.e. templates in
which code or other programming has caused the template to function or appear incorrectly).
Publish Template: the Publish Template function is used to send a template from one Swiftpage user to
another within the same Swiftpage account. Click this button and you will be presented with a list of
users on your account. Highlight the user you want to send the template to—or hold down the control
key to highlight several—and then click Submit. The template will then be published to the other
user(s)’s Read Only Library.
Distribute Template: the Distribute Template function is used to send a template from one Swiftpage
account to a user in a separate Swiftpage account. To use this function, you must first set up your
distribution list. (Note: To do this, go to My Swiftpage > Your User Profile > Distribution List, put in the
account name and user of anyone you want to receive templates from or send templates to, and then
click Submit. In order to receive templates from you, users in other accounts must add you to their
Distribution List as well.) When you click on Distribute Template, you will see a list of the accounts and
users to whom you can send a template. Highlight the account/user combination you want to send the
template to—or hold down the control key to highlight several—and then click Submit. The template
will then be published to the other user’s Read Only Library on the separate Swiftpage account.
Export Template: this button will export your template in .html format and email it to any address you
desire. The export function is used primarily for two reasons: to create a file backup of your Swiftpage
templates and to create web pages out of your Swiftpage templates.
Import a Template: use this button to import templates designed outside of Swiftpage, in HTML editors
like Dreamweaver or Frontpage. Once you click this button, you will be asked to browse for your .html
file to import. Once the file is imported you will have a chance to review and verify it before it is
placed in your Read Only Library. In the Swiftpage Basic Online Editor, you cannot edit imported
