To import a template into your copy of NM Collector Software, please follow these steps:

  • Scroll down to the template you want and save it to your computer. The way to save it to your computer depends on your browser.  Here are some ways that I know of:
    • Internet Explorer:  Right Click the link and choose “Save Target As …”
    • Google Chrome:  Right Click the link and choose “Save Link As …”
    • Mozilla FireFox:   Right Click the link and choose “Save Link As …”
    • Safari: Right Click the link and choose “Download Linked file”
  • Use the “Manage” > “Collection Types” menu selection to open the Collection Types
    window.

Please let me know of any templates that you have created or would like me to create!

The latest release will have most if not all of these templates already installed.  Older releases can import them.
