What's strange is that if I move them around in the listing, they will become active. Another annoyance is that I make the change and they do not "stick". Even though I made sure that the check box did NOT have a check in it.
just a guess.... UAC setting. you may not have write permissions to the template folder.?
There is a known issue in ST9 that when the number of templates exceed sixteen, then the seventeenth and higher will not behave correctly in the New screen.
Should be fixed in ST9 MP5.
I created some additional folders to put templates in and now I'm at 16 and it's working.
