opening Illustrator template file (.ait) for editing results in

I’m using CC 2018. I created a business card template by saving the art via File –> Save as Template. Double clicking that file in the finder opens a regular Illustrator document (.ai) with the saved art as expected.

However, I need to change a color in the template. I thought opening the .ait file from within illustrator via File –> open would allow me to edit the template itself. Instead it does the same thing as double clicking it from the finder (described above).

What am I doing wrong?


Just open the .ai file via the .ait file, make your changes, then save as template again.
