Template window is empty - charlie84 - 11-20-2022

GIMP 2.10.32 on macOS High Sierra, Template window contains nothing, it is empty. What can I do? Thank you.

The Templates page is in place, but GIMP doesn't see it, doesn't open it

Do you mean that there are no entries in the drop down menu as:


If that is the case, it works like this:

A new Gimp installation when first run creates a Gimp user profile. For a Mac something like /Users/MyName/Library/Application Support/Gimp/2.10 there is a bit about it here:

One of the files copied over from that...etc/gimp/2.0/ folder to your user profile is templaterc. Check that it is there. Check that it is not a zero size file. It should be about 12 KB in size. It is just a text file, you can view it in a text editor. 

Gimp does re-write it when you exit so maybe it got erased.

I will attach a zipped file in case you are missing it. Unzip it and copy into your user profile.

Sorry, I do not have a working MacOS (VM) anymore, not many Mac users around this forum.

Yes that was the problem, the file was there but it was an empty file.
Many thanks for the help and congratulations on the expertise.
