    My son has a holiday project to write a short story – he is 7 so I want to try and help him with a template. I can’t see where to download this template.

    • Hi, Please rename the downloaded zip to any shorter name and then extract the files. It should work then. Our download files are getting “long path” error on various devices so the stated above method will fix the issue. Apologies for that and we’ll be fixing the filename issue soon, thank you.
