Trouble importing a template

I recently downloaded Tropy and am just getting started trying to download a .ttp file shared with me, when I click ‘open’ it gives me ‘Error: SQLITE_CONSTRAINT: UNIQUE constraint failed: templates.template_id’. I’ve tried importing another .ttp file and it gives me the same message. I know others have opened this file on their own computers, so I’m not sure why it won’t import on mine. I’m using a Mac and OS Catalina.

This just means that you already imported the template, so everything should be fine. If you’re trying to install an updated version of a template you previously imported, just select that template first in the editor and delete it before importing the updated version.

I’m pretty sure this message appeared the very first time I tried importing it, although I could be wrong. I can’t find it anywhere, where would it be?

In the top select-box of the template editor you can see and select all the templates currently installed.
