Importing Fab 40 Templates into SharePoint Designer... RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I create a new website with SharePoint Designer, it is not aware of the Fab 40 Templates that I have installed on the server (I can see them in the gallery using SharePoint directly).  I messed with the import function, but it does not seem to give me the desired results.  Is there a step-by-step somewhere that I can't seem to find?  This site (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointdesigner/HA101314471033.aspx) shows some of these temlates in the list but does not indicate how they got there. 

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

  • I actually just found the answer.  SharePoint Designer pulls the templates from what have been loaded on the server.  Apparently, what I had loaded onto the server got lost at some point.  I reloaded them (Site Settings | Site Templates (under Galleries) and Upload multiple files.  Now I am seeing them!

    Maybe this will help someone else.
