I opened this issue to see if we can reuse Pencil templates


We can end doing it in a different way, but

is almost done to grab and design gtk mockups.

NOTE: There's a bunch of other template collections (android, web, desktop...)

This is really interesting.
Definitely, a library of reusable assets would be really great to have, but not for the initial MVP.
For sure we should add something like this for v1.1 or 1.2, and also allow users to generate shapes and saved them as reusable templates.
Great find!

I really like the way that figma handles this concept which is to recognize that templates are just design elements living in a different project that have been market as components. Then within that project those components will only force updates out when you explicitly say "Publish my changes to this projects components out to my other work".

I have found it to be a very elegant solution because the more you use the tool the better your templates become. Supporting a general system would mean that power-users can make contributions of high quality starter components from which the whole community can benefit.
