In an ideal world, our source element groups would never conflict, our source element labels would always make sense, and everything we created in TMG 0.87 would have translated into TMG 7.xx without creating this uncontrollable desire to edit everything to take advantage of all the new TMG features. Since this isn't an ideal world, sometimes logical and consistent seem to take a back seat.
If you create your own source templates, it's imperative to keep track of the custom source elements you create. Otherwise, the accumulating chaos may become too much to handle. Due to popular request, I am posting the Excel files our TV-TMG group is using as we create our source templates.
As you may have noted on our blog, we are now entertaining requests for custom source templates. Please contact us with any questions, suggestions, or template requests.
