My Templates is a list of templates that can be applied to readings, psalms, prayers, and other elements in the bulletin and presentation views to change the responsorials and various speaking parts. The templates allow you to save the responsorials’ formats for future use.
Templates use placeholders to help determine special text that changes, like the book, chapter, and verses for the readings. Placeholders can be typed anywhere in the template, and the information from the reading will automatically be entered. Below is a list of the placeholders that can be used.
- #content#—Displays the primary content of the element that the template is applied to. This includes the prayers and the text for Scripture readings.
- #book#—Displays the book for the Scripture reading.
- #chapter:cardinal#—Spells out the chapter number as “one”, “two”, and “three”.
- #chapter:ordinal#—Spells out the chapter number as “first”, “second”, and “third”.
