You should add this report to our bug tracker. The template folder being
hidden is definitely a nuisance and we should either store the templates
in a non-hidden folder or provide special means to navigate there in the
open file dialog.

Image references have been a mess for some time and that needs poper 
fixing, too.

Sounds good to me. Having an "Edit" button there would also solve the
hidden folder navigation problem.
