Item format templates

An item format template is a user-defined text file that specifies the content of an item when you create the item without content.

If you create an item without specifying an initial file name, Dimensions CM creates the new item and uses the item format template defined for the item type as the initial content.

If you specify a file name at item creation, Dimensions CM does not insert the item header template into the file. To apply the substitution variables, manually insert them at the desired position in the item file before creating the item.

For details on how to specify item header substitution variables, see Use header substitution variables.
