Issue solved with the link below.

"For example, save a blank document (call it OpenOffice.odt) into templates folder and you’ll now have a quick-launch for a blank OpenOffice document. Save a blank .txt file inside the templates folder for quick access to an empty Text Editor file. Even save a template .html file to the folder and have quick access to any html templates you work on. This works great if you ever work from file templates and need to re-create them on the fly."

Is there a way for multi-file templates? Like, "New HTML project" should give a folder with index.html, js/javascript.js and styles/style.css – Bharadwaj Raju Apr 19 at 11:47
