To Create a New Drawing from Template
Artboard delivers with dozens of templates for backgrounds, blank standard paper, and popular layouts. Choose File > Template > New From Template… from the main menu. Choose a template as desired, or "Cancel" to skip templates. Check "Show this window at launch" if you wish to be presented with the template window each time you open Artboard. This setting can also be turned on and off in Artboard > Preferences in the main menu.
User templates are accessed under "My Templates" (use File > Templates… > Save Copy As Template to create your own templates).
Note that templates are of varying paper sizes, some of which are sized for poster (tiled) printing or can be shrunk to fit to a single page upon printing.
To Use and Edit Templates
Open a new file from template. Within any given template, drawing objects are placed on different layers to keep objects organized. Click onto a layer to make it active. Use the Select [s] tool and click an object within the active layer to select it. You can add or delete objects using the drawing tools.
To edit text, use the Select [s] tool and double-click the text to edit it.
Note, if you need to access user-created template files to rename or back-up your files, they are saved to a special folder located at ~/Library/Application Support/com.mapdiva.artboard/My Templates, where ~ is your home directory. In Mac OS 10.7 and later, you can right-click a user template within the Template Window and choose "Reveal In Finder".
