Every time I open Illustrator, I am greeted with a selection of templates that I could use to create a new document: Postcard, Letter, Common, iPhone X, HDV/HDTV 1080. I then need to click on "More Presets" to get a "New Document" dialog showing my last used templates to find the ones that I actually use.
I assume that the selection if based on me using an English locale, however, none of these templates have any relevance for me (even when working for print on a home printer, that'd be A4 over here).
Is there any way to change which presets are included in the start-up screen? Either to a pre-defined set or ideally to my last used templates?
I keep the Home Screen turned off, so not much practical experience, but turning it on temporarily I see it has "recent items" features. Doesn't yours? What version of Illustrator are you running? Can you post a screenshot?
I do get the list of "recent items" for re-opening recent documents. What I'm looking for is a way to quickly access my most-used templates.
I'm on version 25, most current one afaik. Here's the screenshot you asked for:
There is as far as I know no way of customising the list of presets presented in that space.
Dear Tobias L,
A very simple method is to go to file menu and open your recent file and then click on any previous document and then save it as your new file. I hope you will understand.
