How to save a graph to use as a template

I am using Eviews 6.0. I created a graph with shaded recession periods. I want to save it as a template so that I can use it repeatedly. When I click the "Manage Predefined Template List", the "Template Management" window jump out. However, it seems I cannot do anything with this window because the "Add" option is disabled...What did I do wrong? Thanks!

You have to name your graph before you can use it as a template.

Hi Gareth,

I wonder how to create a graph template by code.

Is it any named frozen graph can be used as a template? Because I see an option in dialog box but I do not find specific commands or relevant options in graph object methods.

Many thanks,

There is currently no way to create/save a template by code. It must be done by the user interface. We will look into adding the feature to EViews 11

Many thanks. Hope to see this feature since it helps us when create irf plots from matrix. Applying a template saves a lot of codes.
