How do I change the file that Openbox starts a new model with?

When you click “New” in Openbox, you get a window with a dropdown labelled “Choose template”. Each Openbox model starts with a template with some basic calculations. But suppose you always build models for one sector. Why not start with a template that has standard calculations for that sector?  You can create a new template and add it to this list as follows:

  1. Create a new Openbox model
  2. Add the calculations you want.
  3. Save it in your Openbox component library, in the main folder. This will usually be the “OBXComponents” directory in your Documents folder.
  4. Close and restart Excel

Now when you click “New” in Openbox, the model you created will be available as a starting template in that list.
