I am brand new to GWD, so forgive me if this is a silly question!

We had some templates produced by a freelancer that turned out great, but a small tweak to truncate text is required to finish them off. Since the project is completed, and freelancer is paid, I am trying to avoid opening a new project if possible.

I have all the source files for the templates stored locally, so uploading those to GWD, swapping the client logo, and publishing locally is a breeze. (We are running the ads via AdWords) I've also figured out how to inset the "gwd-fitting-truncate="true" via the Code View in GWD. Where I am running into a road block is exporting the source files from GWD so we have updated source files for our templates saved locally. The alternative is adding the "gwd-fitting-truncate="true"" in the code for each ad and client as we publish them locally moving forward, which is not ideal.

Am I missing something, or is there no option to export source files from GWD?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide here!

Hi Tim,

When you satisfy with the file you edit, you can save it as a template by using File > Save as template...After this, the template will be visible in the Template Gallery My Templates tab for you when you choose File > New from template...

Hope it helps.
