Apply template to existing article.
New to CD - am evaluating it (thanks to www.denbeste.nu) for my client.
When you say "existing article" do you mean an existing article in CityDesk? Just go into the article's Properties tag and choose the template you want to use from the dropdown (assuming you've defined one in the Templates dialog).
Aha. What you have is an HTML file, which is published as-is, without any templates applied to it. If you want to use templates you need to have an article.
CopyBoy will also let you import a disk file directly to an article, or convert an HTML file within CityDesk to an article. The final build of CopyBoy 2.0 should be out next week (I hope!)
