2. Now that the template has been saved, go to the templates menu by clicking Open template on the left . Then you will find the template under the My templates tab. On the left under each template there is an Excel icon. By clicking on this you download an Excel file that you can use to import a series.

3. Open the downloaded Excel file. From the third line in this file, each line represents a new record. The first column indicates how many copies of this sign you want to create. The following columns each represent a text box or other element on the sign. You can now simply fill in the rows or copy an existing series into the Excel file.
Tip: You can also easily add numbers to the rows below the top row via the 'fill handle' function of Excel. Note that the first column Number indicates the number of identical images. If you want to make only one image of each row, enter a '1' everywhere.
