regarding 1 image where you cannot edit template:

It is because you have another "EXCEL" process still running in background (the one which is fired up by NPrinting designer) - kill this Excel process as well in your task manager


restart box where designer is beeing used/installed

regarding running task - well it all depends how big report you are actually building and for how many recipients etc etc..

Might be you have tried to forcefully close the template while editing. and then tried to re-open it again.

Close template from task bar , close Nprinting designer.

Then reopen the designer and proceed for open/edit template.
