from the 9.0 user guide:
1. Click Tools > Distribution > OS Deployment.
2. Select Public or My templates or one of their subgroups.
3. Double-click a template. In the Template view, click XML.
4. Click Export. Select the location you want to save the template to, and click Save.
The file is saved as a .XTP file (XML Template Pages). If you are exporting a template containing UTF- only characters, the title will not display correctly in Internet Explorer. The non-displayable characters in the template title will appear as underscores. You can change the template title through the Save As dialog box.
Thanks, that got it.
I have over 230 templates. Is there a way to do more than on3e at a time.. After 9 SP2 my database is hosed and I fear I will need to reset the database and do not want to lose these.. exporting the templates one by one is painful.. Is there a better method?
