    So I am making my lil ole addon...and I have a couple questions.

    When creating a new template I have the option to select an addon. Assuming I am creating the template for the addon I am making I assume to select my addon name from the drop-down list.

    What exactly will associating this template with an addon do?

    When you export the add-on, the templates are exported too ;)

    Wait a sec...I don't have to write the install code to give an addon to someone? Just export and give it to them?

    The install code is only if you're working with databases.

    You probably are, but make sure you're adding templates to the master style and assign to your add-on, not to any child styles (like the default style).

    Yup that's what I am doing..I actually like how when you have debug enabled it seems to favor/default to having edits done in the Master Style when editing templates.
