Page 28 of FTB pdf:

"Modify the DS by "re-creating" the DS/TO we made earlier"

I don't know what YOU do when you "re-create" a DS/TO (Pherhaps you go to the file-list module
and click on the File again and select TV - if you do that you didn't read FTB good enough
because two lines later is written:)

"So, click the Icon of the TO record, select TemplaVoila and then click the button "Modify DS/TO""

And if you follow these instructions: Go to the Sysfolder where your DS/TO are stored and do
as described than you will be able do "EDIT" your previously defined DS/TO ....

This is your personal result of this discussion ... Many people will tend to use
a solution like: kb_tv_cont_slide

But on the other hand in MTB the selecte Main/Sub template gets stupidly inherited to
the sub-pages ... in TV you can control this (Setting the Sub-Page DS/TO templates)

This is most of the time done in one step.
