thank you - changing the path in the "Preferences -> Paths -> Document templates:" box to
solved the problem for me.

On the Mac installation, they get buried inside of the app package.

Find in your applications folder
Right click on it and select "show package contents"
Then go to Contents -> Resources -> templates

On my installation of LyX,
File -> New from Template goes to /Library/ApplicationSupport/LyX/templates
so that may be a more convenient place for the templates to be placed.

Thanks, but that is not the problem. The files for the templates are not copied to the hard drive at installation time, thus they are nowhere to be found when one tries to create a new document.

    Dear all,

    Is anybody aware that templates are not installed when
    installing Lyx on OS X? Is there something I am missing? I
    remember that on previous versions one should run some
    configuration tool after installation, but this tool is nowhere
    to be found in Lyx 2.1.1.
