Export Template Wizard

Use the Export Template wizard to create new templates from project and items that are currently open in Visual Studio. You can access this wizard from the File menu by clicking Export Template.


Use only valid identifier characters when naming a project that will be the source for a template. A template exported from a project named with invalid characters can cause compilation errors in future projects based on the template. For more information on valid identifier characters, see Declared Element Names.
