Starting on September 30th, old style templates will remain accessible to their owners and to anyone who the template has been shared with, but they will no longer be visible in the public gallery. This will only apply to the public Google Docs template gallery; templates created in Google Apps domains will not be affected by this change.
You can ensure your templates remain in the gallery by converting them to the new document editor. Just follow these simple steps:
- Open the document from your documents list
- Click the Preview link at the top of the document to see what it looks like in the new editor
- From inside the preview window, click the Update this document link
By making this change, we hope to bring the best possible experience to more documents.
