Sharing templates in OneNote 2007

    We're using a shared notebook with templates I've created. They're saved in
    My Templates and are specific to certain pages and sections so that when I
    hit New Page, the new page contains the required template. However, if anyone
    else hits New Page, the template does not come up. Where do I save the
    template if I want others to be able to access it?

    Thanks

    There is no way to "share" templates.
    The templates are stored *locally* in %AppData%\Microsoft\Templates.

    The only way I see would be to copy the "My Templates" file to the other
    computers.

    As an alternative one might work with NTFS-links pointing to a
    shared drive mapped locally.

    Here's a thought: use Groove (sorry, SharePoint Workspace) to keep a
    given folder in sync with a corresponding location on the server. Then
    any changes on either side are sync'd up for the rest of the network
    users to use.

    !!Beware if douing this!!
    It's highly dangerous as it interfers with ON's built-on synch-features.
