FAQ

To ask a question that you would like a response to, please contact us via email.

Q. When I go to Add-ons > Template Gallery, I don't see the "Browse Templates" option - only "Help".

Unfortunately we have not been able to figure out why this is happening yet. We are thinking it may be a browser issue, and other developers are reporting this same problem. PLEASE, if you are going to send feedback, let us know what browser you are using. For the most part, people using Safari seem to be having the most problems with Google Sheets and Docs add-ons (and not just the Template Gallery).

If you are really tech-savvy, and know how to look at the javascript console in your browser, it would help us to know if you are seeing an error there.

Q. When I click on "Browse Templates", all I get is a blank dialog window.

This is another thing that seems to be a rare event and one that we have only been able to reproduce by using a version of Safari that is not supposed to work with Google Sheets and Docs anyway. If you are having this problem, please email us a screenshot of the dialog window, or let us know whether you are seeing the title of the dialog window ("Vertex42 Template Gallery"), and what browser you are using.
