  5. Click on OK.
    The icon is displayed next to the imported template, indicating that this template has been imported. Your project is reloaded with all the template's features.You can now browse your project with the new imported features and edit them.
    If you modify something, Studio will indicate you that you broke some other configuration by displaying the errors, and you'll be able to adapt every dependent item. Also you'll be able to rename the imported features if needed.

Using several application templates
Some templates declare the same object. For instance two templates can declare the "Folder" document type. In that case, Nuxeo Studio will refuse to import the second template until you rename the previous object, to avoid collision.
