Once you add the Templates tool, you can right click on it to add a
template and assign a keybinding to it. Also, you can assign a key
binding to the commands 'template' and 'template-file' which bring up

There are example templates that come w/ Wing under the System-wide
tab in the Templates tool and they are located in scripts/templates
inside your Wing installation. When you add User-specific templates

Wing's About box).
