As well as the GUI client, Palette Editor also includes a command line tool which you can use to work with templates. The tool, ctktempr.exe, is located in the Palette Editor application folder.

Unless otherwise noted, whenever the command line tools expect a file name, this can either be a fully qualified path, or will be resolved against the current working directory.
