Hi Steve,

Please trim out the fat when you post.

If you go to File > Preferences > General, there is a place to specify 
Document Templates. These are where your own templates will go.

Once you do this, when you go to File > New from Template, your template 
will be listed along with all of the others which come with Scribus. 
AFAICT, templates are saved much like Collect for Output, where you 
create a directory with all the necessary content for the template. So 
you aren't just pulling in a template file necessarily.
