Download options

When you click on a link or picture that downloads one of my amendable templates you will have two options;

Option 1.

Open the ZIP file directly without saving it to your PC.

You will then be able to open and start using the template saved within the ZIP file.

Option 2.

Download and save the ZIP file to your PC

Once downloaded to your PC, you will need to extract or unzip the template from the ZIP file and save it in a safe location.

If the ZIP file contains more than one file you will have to save the ZIP file first and then extract or unzip the files contained inside it.
