    The View Templates dialog displays.

  2. In the View Templates dialog, select a view template type from the Show type list.

    Each view template type contains a different set of view properties. Select a type that contains the view properties you want for the template you are creating.

  3. In the Names list, select a view template.
  4. Click (Duplicate).
  5. In the New View Template dialog, enter a name for the template, and click OK.
  6. Modify view template property values as needed. See View Template Properties.

    The Include option allows you to select the properties that will be included in the view template. Clear the Include option to remove properties. For properties that you do not include in the view template, you do not need to specify a value and these view properties will not be overridden when you apply the view template.

  7. Click OK.
