Please be aware that if you choose to download the latest version of your template to write down any template style settings you had previously changed because when you add the new template into your website, it will prompt you to overwrite the template. Only the template style settings will be overwritten. No changes will be made to your pages, images, text or contents. If you are unsure about this, please make a backup of your website first (FILE > Export backup). We always recommend you make a backup of your website.
