Sorry I don’t know if this should be a bug, but I am trying to follow the “gratitude diary” video on making a template, and now I’ve made one, but when I try to create an entry (which I suppose is an object) only the Anytype Diary Entry template will work - nothing happens if I click on my version of that template, either in the create object menu (type>Diary Entry> My template), or from the set page. Essentially, my template exists but Anytype won’t let me use it.
HOW TO REPRODUCE IT
THE EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
A new Object should be created and the template should be applied
I think creating an item from a set is what I demonstrate in the second half of the video, and unfortunately it still doesn’t work for me - the option to select the template appears, but when I click on my template nothing happens, the menu just closes.
Yep, you are right! Sorry for missing that… Did you happen to try to recreate the Template? You could try with duplicating the template, but that potentially duplicates the issue . Alternatively, you could copy-paste the contents of the original template to a new one. It “feels” like your Template is somehow broken. Do you have other templates to test with to see whether this is isolated to this single template or templates in general for you?
Thanks. While I still have that issue, I found a work around: create an item from the Diary Entry type, create the item as if it was a template, then in the menu click “Use as template.” Only templates that I create that way are working for me.
