Stay organized with the My Projects and My Templates libraries!
In this video, we discuss the reason for having both My Projects & My Templates libraries in the Notebooking Publisher. We also demonstrate how to use the “copy to” and “move to” feature to easily keep everything organized and to give you about a gazillion options for using these libraries.
Inside your pro school publisher account, you will have several different project and template libraries. You can see these running across the middle of your page. They are my projects, my templates pro publisher. And if you have a pro school membership, you will also have school templates. So in this video, I want to focus on my projects and my templates, because at first glance it may be confusing. Um, when you see those two different libraries that look exactly the same and function exactly the same. So the reason for the two libraries is to help you keep projects and templates separate and organized, and it’s really up to you, how you use them. If I’m going to give you a simple example of my intended purpose for having both of these libraries. So I’m going to start first by creating a new template. And I’m going to say, this is going to be copy of work print, and let’s say it’s for Bible create. So this takes us to the workspace and I’m just going to make this very simple. We’re going to go ahead and add, copy work, primary lines to this page. Let me zoom in. And we’re using a print font, and let’s say that this student needs, or that this template will use a size 44 font. All right. And then I’m just going to make a simple heading here at the top that says, Bible, copy work,
Speaker 1 (02:10):
Go ahead and center that and let’s center it on the page. Okay. So this could be just a plain template for Bible copy work that you want to use over and over again. So when I save this and now this would be saved to my template library. So you’ll see I’m right now in projects, nothing there, but M templates. Now I have copy work print for Bible. So I would leave this as it is. Um, and now I want to use that for my students. And so then I would come to these options here, where it says copy to template, and I’m going to select copy to project.
Speaker 1 (02:59):
And I want to give this to student number one, click apply. And here you can change the name if you would like to. And we clicked confirm, it says up here at the top, it was saved. So navigate back to my projects, I will see now that under student one, he now has copy work print Bible, just to show you, let’s go back to my templates. You see that as still listed also here in the templates. And this is under the teacher account. Go back to my projects. And this is under student one. Now he has copy work print Bible. And so now I can go in here and specifically add his copy, work to that page.
Speaker 1 (03:53):
I thought I had something to saved. So for God, so loved the world. All right. So then you would go ahead and finish that page out, save it. And now that project is saved with his specific coffee work in the projects. Going back to my templates, let’s say, I want to do the same thing with this, um, this project, or I’m sorry, this template, but now I want one for literature. So me, I could go in here and just type. He knows that I wanted to change the heading to literature, make another page of it. That’s fine too, but I would rather have a its own separate template. So I went to make a copy of this template, solely the setting here, the same copy to template. And this time I’m going to save it to myself, the teacher, and I’m going to use this one for literature. So I’m going to type a new name, copy work, print literature. Now I can open this template.
Speaker 1 (05:10):
I’m going to leave everything the same, except I want to change the title now to literature, copy work, save it. Let me go back to my templates. And you’ll see, I have two copies. Here’s the Bible copy work. And now the literature copy work. And again, I can copy this template project or I can even move it if I like using these options here. So I want to copy this project again to my student. Number one, apply, and I will keep the same name. So if I go to my projects, you’ll see that student number one now has two projects, Bible and larger.
Speaker 1 (06:04):
Now I’m gonna go back to my templates and let’s say I wanted to use the same idea. Um, the KV work Bible and literature for, um, let’s say cursive. So I’m going to copy this template template again to myself, click apply. And instead of it being print, I went to change this one to cursive. So now it created another copy. And let me go ahead and make another copy of the literature template. Save it to myself. And we’re going to change this one also to cursive. So now I can open this new template and we’re going to change the double click. And I’m going to change the default text for this, from print now to cursive. And we’re going to use a size 50 font save.
Speaker 1 (07:17):
And let me go back now and open the literature template and I’m going to do the same thing. I want to change the default for this text to be cursive. And we want size 50. Now, you know, I’m keeping this very simple. You could add borders, you could add other templates from our pro school publisher, library, images, clip art. You know, sky’s the limit as to how you set up this template. All right. So save now let me go back. I’m going to refresh this page just to make sure everything is the way it should be. So I’m on my templates. I’m looking at my teacher account and I have now set up four templates. We have Bible copy, work and cursive literature, copy, work, cursive and Bible print and literature print. So I set up these cursive sets for student number two. So I’m going to select copy to project student number two, apply and confirm.
Speaker 1 (08:33):
And then the same thing with the cursive for literature. Copy this project to student number two and apply, confirm. So now if I go to the projects and I look at student number two, let’s see, he might be a, he’s already listed down here at the bottom student. Number two now has two projects as well. He has copy work cursive and for Bible and for literature. So now I can go in there and put his specific Bible copy work for that day or that week, or like I said, you can add multiple pages. This could be for the, you know, the whole year you could go in and set up, go and open this up. So right now we have one page, maybe this is for week one. I could hit the duplicate button. There’s four week two for week three week four, you know, and so on.
Speaker 1 (09:33):
And then likewise from the, my project page, you can also have, you have the same options. You can copy any of these projects to another user, or you can copy them to a template. Uh, maybe you create a project and decide, wow, this is awesome. Let’s use this over and over again. So you copy it over to your templates and then just remove the specific info, but keep the frame of the project together. And then you can reuse it as a template, you know, over and over again. And you also have the option to move things back and forth. And you’re also noticed you’re not limited to just one user. If you wanted to copy this project to multiple users, you can do that by selecting as many as you want and then clicking the apply button. So there are so many ways that you could use this. I hope this helps to at least give you an understanding as to why we created both a project folder and a template folder.
