[Tshwanelex-l] Loading DTD templates in tlTerm (?)

Hmm, I was going to say 'yes it's possible' but now that you mention 
it, I recall now that option isn't present in the tlTerm 'new' 
dialog. That may be a bit of an oversight on our part, as it should 
be quite easy for us to implement, as the functionality is already 
there in TLex etc. Will add it to the TODO list here.

In the meantime, there is a relatively easy step-by-step workaround 
that achieves basically the same thing:

- Open existing tlTerm file
- Select menu option 'Edit/tag all'
- Go to 'Filter (F5)'
- Under the 'Hide' column tick the first item, 'Tagged', and click 
the 'Apply' button
- Go to 'File/Save a copy/tlTerm file'
- Under 'General settings' tick 'Use filters'
- Click 'OK' and save under a new filename
- Then close the current file (File/Close), and open the tlTerm 
you've saved under the new filename
- (Optional) Go to the 'Termbase/Properties' menu and change any 
'general' properties, e.g. the name of the termbase

Basically this saves a new copy of the current termbase, but minus 
the actual entries. It seems like a fairly long-winded workaround 
but it's actually a fairly quick process, and can be followed easily 
'step by step' without understanding. Let me know if that helps.
