    Help, please!

    What an annoying and time-consuming nuisance to open every template and find those dumb Latin words that I have to highlight and delete! Is there any way to set this computer to automatically get rid of them for me before I even have to see them? What is that all about anyway? I can figure out where to type, Steve! :mad::mad::mad::mad:! (I searched for a thread on this, but couldn't find one.)

    Does anyone else find this annoying? Thanks.

    You need to relax and provide some useful information.

    What OS version are you running?
    What templates are you talking about?
    What application and version are you using?

    Imagine that. Go figure.

    Just press CMD+A and overwrite them. After all, you *are* going to put some text in that box anyway right?

    I am running Mac OS X Version 10.6.5 Snow Leopard
    The templates are in iWork; Pages
    also in any Mac Mail Stationery

    Have you ever opened any of those?

    Doesn't Cmd+A and Backspace work?

    Anyway, GGJstudios is right in asking you to clarify a tiny wee more.

    You can create your own stationery. You don't have to use the standard ones. From Mail > Help > Using stationery in messages:
    The same is true for Pages.

    Yep, never bothered me.

    If you need to use a template often, you can edit it how you want and save it as a new template (Menu -> File -> Save as Template) - it will show up in the My Templates section on the left sidebar (of Pages ... I don't use Mail templates)

    Thanks! I tried that and it worked much faster than highlighting and deleting and I was glad to find it left the text box in place. Merely deleting the text with the Delete key (without highlighting) removes the box and then a new text box has to be installed and sized.

    I will use the Command + A and be happy. Appreciate it! :D
