Can I edit dotScribe's templates in the online library?

dotScribe comes with a vast library of medical templates, terms, and acronyms that can be executed with just a few keystrokes. 

The dotScribe library is separate from your personal library and the community-shared library.

Unlike the community-shared section of dotScribe, the official dotScribe library is standardized and formulated to be accurate, easy to use, and adaptable to different placeholders. 

Because dotScribe templates are standardized, they are not available to be edited in the online library. 

After you execute a dotScribe phrase, however, you can of course edit it as plain text.
