When you select Tools->Templates, do you see the templates dialog box

I havn't used the templates for a long time, but I see now that I don't have
them either (in 2.9.1w5).
I have unhashed the template include line in Xpp but the Tools menu in Xpp
still has Templates greyed out.

On further investigation I do get the templates if I use an Xpp file in which
the include for the templates is omitted (hashed), but if I use an include
even with a full pathname it doesn't seem to pick up the template file.
This applies also to the XppKeyboard file as well, I can't get the include to
work, but if the include is omitted the behaviour corresponds to the issued
XppKeyboard file (so far as I can see).

In an X/Motif resource file, I believe '!' starts a comment and include is a macro so must have a '#' before it, as in the Xpp file distributed with ProofPower. Roger - do you still get the issue with #include ?

To find out what is disabling the Templates menu item, it is worth trying


and checking that the paths reported in the terminal look sensible. In particular, what is given for XUSERFILESEARCHPATH ? Also, if %N is replaced by XppTemplates does any element of the path refer to a file on the file system?
