Question Template for all new files

Hi All,

I was wondering if there was a way to create a template for all new files that didn't involve opening a file and doing 'Save As'

Basically all I want is a couple of additional MetaData items in all the time because it is mildly annoying having to add 'Author' and 'Description' every single time I create an epub file (which I do frequently enough) for my own personal use.

If I can do that then it is simply a little easier. Also being able to have a custom CSS on all the files would be nice, but I have worked around that problem for now.

Kind Regards
K

Correct me if I'm wrong, but even if you could have the custom metadata already present in all new/empty epubs, wouldn't you still have to "Save As" anyway? The initial save IS a Save As. And you'd still have to populate/edit something like the Description metadata anyway.

I guess I'm not really seeing/understanding the need. Opening a new epub with custom metadata already present; editing the custom metadata; then doing the initial Save As is hardly going to save much time compared to opening a template epub; editing the custom metadata; and doing a Save As, is it?

I guess with an Input template plugin, you could prompt for the values for some custom metadata, but you'd still have to perform the initial Save As -- nothing is going to get around that. At least with an input plugin, you could automate the generation of a new unique id for the book.
