When a Template is greyed out the template is in use. Hover over the lock to see if you have the template in use. Click the padlock to unlock the template if you have saved your changes back to HowNow Online and preferrably closed the template.

Likewise, the template can be Locked by clicking on the Unlocked padlock.

Currently when changes are saved via the Edit App and the application used to edit the file is closed the template in HowNow Online will remain locked for 24hrs. It is up to the user to unlock it when they have finished with it if the template needs to be edited earlier.
