    First, i do not speak very well English, sorry.

    I'm trying to create a new template with the new system TM 1.2.

    What would be the best way to create a template?

    Doing visual (style) changes in extra.css? Is this optimal? (Using TM)
    I have seen that changes in extra.css are written at the end of styles.css file so, if i add all css changes in extra.css any person can steal the code and paste into your extra.css and also i need add !important on every part of this CSS to work.

    Regarding the new system.

    I tried changing this:

    #moderatorBar {
    background-color: @primaryDarker;
    border-bottom: 1px solid @primaryLightish;
    font-size: 11px;

    for this:

    #moderatorBar {
    background-color: @anothercolor;
    font-size: 11px;

    And nothing happens.

    I'm going crazy to make this changes i think xD.
    Exists any guide with the start steps to use TM system?

    1.2 has a new merging capability. TMs are designed for add-on developers. Its recommended for users to edit templates directly.
