Assingning a new Templates to a Model:
Each threat model has its own template (.tm7 file) assigned to it via a unique id. Unfortunately this ID cannot be changed from within the tool itself. To adapt a new template to an existing model you therefore need to change the template ID manually by opening the file within a text editor. Lukily, both template and model are XML based.
Here, search for the manifest tag and change ID and name from the template file to it, e.g.:
<a:Manifest> <a:Author>...</a:Author> <a:Id>aef9fb95-2bd6-4f3b-8325-62e83d6ccaa2</a:Id> <a:Name>Secodis Web Plain</a:Name> <a:Version>188.8.131.52</a:Version> </a:Manifest>
Finally, open the template in the tool and apply the model manually via "File -> Apply Template"
