Populate Template Placeholders script Not filling placeholders

Sounds like you've got the note entry correct, as it is prompting you for placeholder values, but perhaps you didn't get the placeholders correct in the body of the template. It's not a bad idea to build the template project by copying and pasting the placeholders from the line in the notes field, as even slight changes will cause the script to believe the placeholder is just text to be copied, not a placeholder. A leading or trailing space between the makes it not match, for example.
