On the settings tab you will find options and settings which apply to the app or across all projects:

Configure identities

Here you will find a list of your configured accounts. Currently you can only create an account by using our registration service (SketShDb-ID).

We will try your template out and add it to the public templates list.

The icon of your template shows if the template is only present just in iCloud or already present on the device.

Tapping an entry in the list show the options:
