How do I add new entry templates?

Entry templates should be saved in $KDEHOME/share/apps/tellico/entry-templates/ for access for a single user or $KDEDIR/share/apps/tellico/entry-templates/ for access by everyone. Templates in $KDEHOME will override any files by the same name in $KDEDIRS. The entry templates can be set on a per collection-type basis in the settings dialog.

Templates for the Report Dialog are saved in $KDEHOME/share/apps/tellico/report-templates/.

Can I modify what the printed page looks like?

Find the file tellico-printing.xsl which should be in the $KDEDIR/share/apps/tellico/ directory. You can copy that to $KDEHOME/share/apps/tellico/ for personal modifications. You'll have to know XSLT, but modifying that file is how you change the printing layout. HTML is generated from the file, and the easiest way to change the appearance of the printout is to modify the CSS in the top portion.

Be aware that the tellico-printing.xsl references another file, tellico-common.xsl, that contains some common XSLT templates. If you copy tellico-printing.xsl to $KDEHOME, you must either modify the <xsl:import> element to point to the actual location of the tellico-common.xsl file or copy the common file as well.
