If you are not sure, there is more explanation here: Templot for you?
The paid-for versions of Templot were withdrawn in 2011.
If you are new to Templot you may not realise that Templot has been available for more than 18 years and has been subject to constant development over that time. This means that many of the user guides, tutorials and screen videos on the Templot Companion web site were made with and for earlier versions, so in reading them please bear this in mind. On the other hand you are unlikely to make much progress with Templot if you don't read them.
Start off with the basic beginners guide here: Templot Explained
A full description of what Templot is and does can be found at: Templot Home
There is a list of all the existing documentation here.
Development of Templot continues and will never be completely finished. The current version of Templot2 is version 217a, released on 12th December 2017.
You may find some things on the web site don't match what you are seeing on the screen in the latest version. That's where the Templot Club user forum comes in to answer your questions.

• Please note that you will need an internet connection on your computer when starting Templot2 each time. Once the program is running the internet connection is no longer needed. This means you can use the Hibernate function on your laptop computer if you need to use Templot where no internet connection is available.
Please bear in mind that some parts of Templot2 are still work in progress -- some of the links to the help notes do not yet go anywhere.
If you need help with Templot please ask on Templot Club. I regret that I can no longer provide individual support via email and PM.
