Yes, but it may not be that specific template.  I see what you mean
Chris but my memory is terrible and I wouldn't be able to remember the
template name.  I like to scroll down through the available templates
and pick the one to open.  At the moment I can do this but I have page
already generated (untitled) in the background.  Ok, it's not much
hassle to simply close that one but surely it shouldn't have to be
that way.  It means more mouse buttons pressed which is not good when
you have arthritis in your fingers.  I'm sure others must be in this

Don't take it to the tip recycle it via the Freecycle(r) Network.
