  • Different permissions than Environment User

  • A Template Designer Seat is assigned on the Subscription Level. If the user has access to an environment, with a Seat assigned, they can make templates in the environments they have access to.
  • To use the Desktop plugins you don't need a template designer seat: importing content in GraFx Publisher or GraFx Studio doesn't require a template designer seat but making the templates smart does require a seat.
