 ====== Customizing the Templates ====== ====== Customizing the Templates ======
-Templates ​are PNG files in the exact size of 1404x1872 pixels. The PNG files are located in ''/​usr/​share/​remarkable/​templates/''​ you add new templates by simply copying additional files to this folder using [[tech:​ssh]].+The templates ​are PNG files and are located in ''/​usr/​share/​remarkable/​templates/''​ you add new templates by simply copying additional files to this folder using [[tech:​ssh]].
-Alternatively you can use the free [[assistant]] or buy the [[https://​​pages/help|eInkPads Template Installer]].+As of at least version, copying files is not sufficient to make your templates appear. You also have to edit the file ''​templates.json''​ with your favourite text editor to include meta data for your newly uploaded file. For each template file, there'​s a section like for example 
 +  "​name":​ "​Weekplanner US", 
 +  "​filename":​ "P Week US", 
 +  "​iconCode":​ "​\ue9db",​ 
 +  "​landscape":​ "​false",​  
 +  "​categories":​ [ 
 +    "​Life/​organize"​ 
 +  ] 
 +These sections within curly brackets are separated with commas from each other. Just replace ''​name''​ with whatever caption you'd like to give your file. ''​filename''​ should be the file name of your PNG/SVG file without the extension. ''​iconCode''​ is a Unicode character from a webfont installed on your reMarkable that contains all the device'​s iconography (''/​usr/​share/​remarkable/​webui/​fonts/​icomoon.woff''​). This value can simply be copied from another entry in the template file, but you are free to inspect the font and choose a specific icon from the set as well. It will show up as the thumbnail image above the template name. ''​categories''​ can be used to create an own custom category. Just name it accordingly. 
 +The "​landscape"​ option defaults to false, and can be omitted entirely if the template is to be used in portrait mode. However, if you want the template to appear under the '​landscape'​ section of the ReMarkable'​s template selection menu, set this option to "​true"​.  
 +Alternatively you can use the free [[assistant]] or the paid [[https://​​collections/frontpage/​products/​remarkable-template-installer-apple-computers|eInkPads Template Installer]] ​with Drag n Drop functionality,​ or paid [[http://​​projects/​rcu/​|reMarkable Connection Utility]] which stores all metadata in the template file and automatically restores templates after system updates. 
 +===== Specifications ===== 
 +The templates are in the exact size of 1404x1872 pixels. 
 +The Menu Bar, if not closed, takes exactly 120 pixels on the top and on the left side.  
 +This image shows the various //​iconCode//​ values for system 
 +===== Change default Template ===== 
 +There was a tip posted on [[https://​​r/​RemarkableTablet/​comments/​8k4s9n/​how_to_change_the_default_template_for_notebooks/​|Reddit]] about changing the default template that is used for new notebooks. 
 +The template ''​Blank.png''​ is set to be used as the default template when creating a new notebook. 
 +To have another template make a backup of the original ''​Blank.png''​ (eg. rename to ''​Original-Blank.png''​) and just to be sure make a copy on your computer in case of an update overwrite.  
 +Then rename(or copy) the template you want to use as the default to ''​Blank.png''​ and you have a new default template!
