Thank you, Mike
How do I sync my definition with my template?

The Source Template Definitions are global and can be accessed from all Projects.

The Source Template records are local to each Project and may be a subset of the globals.

If you edit a Source Template Definition it must be synced with a Source Template to propagate the changes.

Thank you, I hadn't realised that there was a layer between a Template and a Template Definition (and I still don't understand what the difference is).
Anyway I've run the Plug-in and the Collection now appears with its associated Template Definitions.  Am I right to assume that editing the Template Definition will change the Template? And that changing the Template will change the Sources associated with the Template?

As I continue my work importing my data from TMG into Family Historian I have got to looking at Sources and Source Templates.  FH has very sensibly imported the variety of TMG sources not immediately convertible to one of its own sources and templates into a collection "TMG Import".  How do I access these templates to review and edit them? The Collection does not appear in the list - see screen shot.
Thanks.
