A Smart Clause® template is an archive file whose contents is defined by the Open Source Accord Project Template Specification.

The easiest way to create a new template is to use the Open Source Template Studio, a web-based environment for creating and editing templates that conform to the Accord Project specification.

If you are still using Cicero 0.13 with the legacy editor, please use the "Switch to Version 0.13" button in the upper right corner of Template Studio.

You can open any of the Open Source Accord Project templates in Template Studio, edit them, and then export your changes to a CTA file for upload to Clause.

Accord Project Cicero also includes IDE add-ons and command-line tools and for developers. Please refer to the Accord Project documentation for details.

Ensure that you use a version of Cicero that is supported by Clause.
