I had similar problem. I do not have v10 so I’m going to take a stab but I would like more tips also. When you create a *template*, set all of the cells of the Tabular Note to the formatting you want any *added cells* to be. This should be a default for the Tabular Note. If any rows or columns are to be different, make sure you select by Rows or Columns. Then, if you want special title format rows or cells, change them last. Please correct this if it is wrong.
