Just tell me what size template you want and I will make it for you. I have CTS software but its got a learning curve. Its much faster to modify templates already made. I waited and waited to score the CTS plugin.... I was really disappointed when I finally got it. I had and extensive write up on modifying templetes but its gone now. I will post it up the exact modifications to your template so you can learn how to do it to.

The DLS software was written in the US so it uses US values. The templates you have asked for in US are  5" x 4.724"   and  6" x 4.685"

 

So we are going to start with a 5x5 and a 6x4_5 templates.

 

Templates are located on the X:>Product>Layouts>standard    folder.

 

Right click the 5x5 file and select open with notepad.

All done with modification. Now use the SAVE AS command and save the file as 5x4724 and make sure its in the standard folder

Now we have to do four things to make this template usable by the dls system. First is to modify the description file inside the product folder.

 Again right click this file and select open with notepad and you will see this.......

I did not include ALL of the data that is in this file.... I just used the part that we have to add too.

 

We need to ADD the size that we just made in this file. You will notice I added the size in both columns at the appropriate spot in the size descriptions below. Close and save this file in place.
