Cannot find old template
« on: November 27, 2011, 09:18:28 PM »
I am using a template that I downloaded from the website (Drs. Orders Report) and I'd like to use it in BeerSmith 2. However, I cannot find the template on my machine. It's saying it's on my Desktop, but it's not there. I can generate the report in the preview pane and print it.

I'm wondering if there's a way to download it from the site again if it's not hidden somewhere on my machine (I've looked), but I can't find it.

Using latest version of 1.4 (transitioning to 2.0.50) on WinXP SP3.

  The template is probably under your Templates directory here:

By default BeerSmith is in the "C:\Program Files\BeerSmith" directory.

  However under Vista you may also have a "Compatibility files" directory that shows up on the toolbar when you go to the BeerSmith directory.  This is where your data and the opts file likely lives.  The full path to the compatibility diectory is:  C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\BeerSmith

  where {USERNAME} is your login name for Vista/Win 7.

  Note that on many systems this is a hidden/system directory which will not show up unless you go into the options for Windows file explorer and set it to show hidden/system files.
