I'm unable to get HS to use Templates at all.

The Templates menu lists only "Go to Templates Folder."
Selecting that opens ~/Library/Application Support/HoudahSpot/Templates/ showing the 8 default template files.

Pop up menus in Preferences-> New Search and Templates have no entries.

Queries saved as "Save As Template..." go into ~/Library/Application Support/HoudahSpot/Templates/ but cannot be used.

I tried deleting the Templates folder, which was recreated on next launch. No change.

Templates are loaded using Spotlight. My guess is that you have excluded ~/Library from the Spotlight index.

You may force indexing of the templates by issuing the following command in

mdimport ~/Library/Application Support/HoudahSpot/Templates/
