I can make templates, but the save operation does not show the option to save them in the Template Manager. How do I make this operation default for templates?
This has not answered the question at all. WHERE is the template manager?
When you say, “I can make templates”, that means you have found “File > Save as Template” on the menu.
That automatically saves them in the “Template Manager”. To find them for editing or using for a new document, go to File > New > Templates, and look in “My Templates”.
You must select a Template to get the further options of “Edit”, “Set as Default”, etc. Simply double-click to open as a new document.

Hope this helps.

In mine, version 22.214.171.124, it’s “File > Templates > Save as Template”.
