|Unexciting but useful: my 2000AD page template with panel grids for 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, 6x6|
UPDATE: I've now repaired the download link that was lost when Apple discontinued its iDisk service. I've added single and double page templates for Manga Studio 4, and a new template for Manga Studio 5, which is not compatible with Manga Studio 4 format and earlier.

Installing in Manga Studio 4:
Clicking the above link should auto-download the file; it's stored on the server as a zip archive, but may download as an ordinary folder depending on your OS and what utilities you have installed. Inside the folder, double-click the file "2000AD Page Grid.cpg" to open it in Manga Studio, make any changes you want, then use File: Save As Template... to turn it into a template file.

Installing in Manga Studio 5:
Clicking the above link should auto-download the file; it's stored on the server as a zip archive, but may download as an ordinary folder depending on your OS and what utilities you have installed.
Manga Studio 5 doesn't have a special template format or settings; just open the file (double click it or use File: Open) and use File: Save As… to save a copy under a new name. You're ready to go.
I like lots and lots of layers (including lots of different layers of outlines and spot blacks), so you may want to simplify the layer structure to suit your own way of working.
