Can't click Template!!!!
#1
Exclamation 
Hey there, as the title suggests, I can't click templates. Which is weird because it was working fine last time I used it (yesterday).


Now? I get this:

Have you tried opening the Templates dialog? It's third from the bottom on the Windows > Dockable Dialogs menu? It lists all the contents of your templates folder (which I've not been able to find). You can use it to create new templates and delete the odd sizes you know you'll never use. Double-clicking a template on the dialog list opens a new document with that template. That doesn't answer your question or solve the problem, but for now it's a workaround and who knows? It may jolt the Files > New > Templates path to work again.

Hey, Ritergeek. For some reason, when I do this, no templates show up.

So I'm guessing this is why my File-New-Templates path isn't working, my templates are simply not there.
So now my next problem is, how to get back my templates and insert them into which folder.

Update:
After reading posts on, http://gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=133

I've realized I don't have a templaterc folder/file on my laptop anymore.

Will download gimp on another laptop and transfer the files in the morning and see if that works

iZeus, that link raises a compelling question. My templates functions are all working perfectly within GIMP, which I updated yesterday to 2.10.10. I have two custom templates intact. However, before I posted my first reply, I searched both the Apps/roaming/... path and the Program Files/GIMP path to look for a templates folder. I found one in the Apps path, but it's empty. No templates folder seems to exist in the Program Files path.

So, where are GIMP templates stored? Does anyone know? I've searched the web and this forum and found no answer. I'd like to copy my custom templates to other computers and to back them up.

Can anyone answer this?

AFAIK, in the templaterc file in your Gimp Profile. To locate the Gimp profile of the executing Gimp,  several ways described here:

I finally did find templaterc in my User/Apps tree, however,  it's listed as a simple file with no extension. That's in Windows 10 with all extensions enabled. My Templates folder in that stream exists, but it's empty. Out of curiosity, I opened templaterc with Notepad and discovered it is a listing of all templates with their attributes. I assume it's best left alone and any edits should be done with the Templates dialog docker.  Not that it matters, but does anyone know why we have a Template folder that's empty? Is that where we'd put downloaded templates?
