To clone a template from an existing template

  2. Log in to X-Author for Contracts.

  3. From the Contracts pane, click the left-hand Menu icon () and select Templates.
  4. In the Templates pane, go to the Work tab, click the Expand icon () and select Clone.
  5. In the Clone Template page, change the name of the cloned template, to suit your requirements. By default, the cloned template name has "Copy" added to the end of the original template name. For example, if you're cloning a template named Clause Agreement Template then the default name for the cloned template will be "Clause Agreement Template" Copy. 
    You have the option to change the settings of your template when you clone it. You can specify the following fields:

    Agreement TypesFrom the drop-down, you can select multiple Agreement types to associate with your template. The value of Agreement Types decides which templates are available at the time of agreement generation. If your Template's Agreement Type matches with the Agreement Type of your agreement record, you will see that template in the list of available templates at the time of document generation.
