is there a rhino icon you can change the new template to so it looks like the original one?

not sure what you mean by that. If you mean the image you see of the Rhino file itself: Rhino saves the active viewport as thumbnail image.

what i set the OPENS WITH in the properties to.

Did you read it?
It says you are missing image files, press continue; what do you get?

when i press continue it goes away and i can model

when i click the help link you post it takes me to the help page describing whats going on but it doesnt explain the fix

Well, where are the missing images? Were they with the original file? Did you delete them?

Hello - it looks like your default template is one made for matrix - you can pick a different startup template, or with this one, if you delete all the materials that have missing textures then SaveAsTemplate you should be all set.

Hi Pascal, my goal was to be able to have the same layers in a rhino 6 template as i do in the matrix rhino 5.
