Prism can save your work in three special kind of files designed to let you save time by not repeating steps with future data.

A template is a Prism file that you recycle. Choose a template, add new data, and all the analyses and graphs will be created automatically. Templates are an older feature, and we recommend you use example files or method files instead.

Example files are files saved in a special location to later be cloned. Choose to clone an example file on the Welcome (File..New) dialog, enter new data, and all the analyses and graphs will be remade.

Method files are files saved in a special location to later be applied to new data you have entered. When you apply a method, you apply the analyses and graphs in the method file to the data table you have already entered. Do so in the Analyze dialog.

Save your work as a template, example or method from commands in the File... Save special menu. To save an example, you must be looking at a graph when you save the example. To save a method, you must be looking at a data table. Templates can be saved from anywhere.
