 +==== Editing event templates ====
 +
 +You can insert and create **event templates**:​ these are recurring event blocks which can be easily inserted and personalized.
 +Click on the icons shown below to insert or create event templates:
 +
 +[[http://​www.php.net|{{ wiki:​dokuwiki-128.png }}]]
 +----
 +=== Inserting templates ===
 +
 +Click on ''​**Insert a template**''​ in the [[edit_event|Event Editor]] ribbon. The following window will appear:
 +
 +[[http://​www.php.net|{{ wiki:​dokuwiki-128.png }}]]
 +
 +Choose a template from the list. You can personalize the template with actions and conditions by filling out the parameter fields
 +on the right side. Finally, click on ''​**Insert**''​ to add the personalized template to your events.
 +----
 +=== Create a template ===
 +
 +Click on ''​**Create**''​ to, well, create a template:
 +
 +[[http://​www.php.net|{{ wiki:​dokuwiki-128.png }}]]
 +
 +The template will use all the events in the scene, so make sure to create a scene with only the required events. Fill the name, description,​
 +and personalization fields. You can for example enter an object name and a description of what the object does, and the template
 +will substitute the object name with the object chosen by the user.
 +
 +You can also enter a variable name: you will be able to personalize it with a different variable name when you are using the template.
 +
 +**NOTE:** Be careful! Once the template is in use, the variable and object names will be replaced. DO NOT USE SHORT VARIABLE NAMES!
 +Otherwise a variable named called '​a'​ will cause all '​a'​ letters of all parameters of all actions and conditions to be replaced.
 +
 +Finally, click on ''​**Create**''​ and choose a file name with which to save the template. If you want to be able to use your
 +template in the future, save the file in the directory ''​**Folder**'',​ in the **GDevelop** folder.
 +
 +You can find other templates on our [[http://​www.forum.compilgames.net/​|Forum]].
