    Native tab
  3. Uncheck Include Series data so that the data will not be written to the output file.
  4. Uncheck the File size control.
  5. Set Format to Text.
  6. Click the Save button.
  7. Navigate to the GraphTemplates folder where you want the template file to be stored, enter a filename, and click Save.
  8. Click Close when you are finished.

A standard graphic will be used for each new template. To make it easier to distinguish between your templates, you can apply a custom icon to them. To create your own icon, create a 42 x 42 pixel BMP image. Unused pixels in this 42x42 size should be colored white. Place the final BMP file in one of the template file locations.
