OS X 10.9
Fireworks CS6 (12.0)
Installed with Creative Cloud
When I select "Fireworks > File > New from template" the dialog opens with no available templates.
Searching my entire files system reveals no Fireworks Templates.
I figured this problem out after some trial and error and thought I'd share my solution with you.
The files are somewhat buried, and I too could not find the files or folders using the spotlight feature, but they are there. Here's a screenshot of the file path on my Mac. Hope this helps!
Also, please be aware that I had to turn on the ability to see the Library folder. Right click in your home folder and then click Show View Options. There's a checkbox there at the bottom. Please see screenshot.
I created a template and then selected File > Save as Template. That's when I saw that all of those folders and files were there. Once I saved a file to one of the folders and navigated to it manually, then Fireworks pulled it up when I tried to open from template. *shrug* Computers, man.
