  • It would be better to add the screenshots and text as actual text in your post; or at least give it a white background, I can't read the text. – Cai Feb 4 '17 at 21:03
  • @Cai Thanks for the suggestion. I have added images and have written text in my post. – Mansi Feb 4 '17 at 22:12
  • Will they stay for every artboard or do I have to do that every single time? – Nicholas Feb 5 '17 at 21:29
  • @Nicholas it is a option in the template file you open. If you open a different template or make a new template file then they wont be there. – joojaa Feb 6 '17 at 7:25
  • @Nicholas No they won't appear unless you put them on again. But they might appear when you open a new file/artboard under film and video. Rest of the template options won't turn them on. – Mansi Feb 6 '17 at 8:24
