Save window.
The template is saved in your home folder in the following subfolder structure: Library/
Application Support/iWork/Numbers/Templates/My Templates/. It appears in the My
Templates pane of the Template Chooser.


Click Save.

To delete a custom template, in the Finder navigate to the folder in which you saved
