New features ► Arranger templates

*
Create a new Arranger track from a template. The template is applied to the Arranger track, which creates new sections. This is useful when starting a new song and you want to quickly create all Arranger sections for a typical song form that you can fill in with music.
*
Insert sections in an existing Arranger track. Drag Arranger templates from the Media Browser and drop them in existing Arranger tracks. Sections in the template are inserted into the target track.
*
Create a new arrangement. If your project already contains existing sections, you can use Arranger templates to create new arrangements from the existing sections. This allows you to preview your existing sections with different song forms. Sections that exist in the template but not in the project can be optionally created at the end of the project in the active Arranger track.

By default, Arranger templates are stored in C:\Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Core\Arranger Templates. The folder location can be specified in Edit > Preferences > File - Folder Locations under Arranger Templates.
The Media Browser also has an Arranger Templates content location preset that points to C:\Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Core\Arranger Templates.
