Editor Templates options
The Customization Editor allows you to create, edit, and remove Editor templates. You can associate these templates to the custom project types using the Code-generation Templates option. Associating an Editor template to a custom project type creates a New File option in the File > New menu, which you can use to create a new file with the selected template pattern.
When you select the Editor Templates node, the Customization Editor displays the New Editor Templates section in its right pane. In this section, you can create, edit, remove, import, and export Editor templates.
The following controls are available in the New Editor Templates section:
