How to setup the SPPB templates as a Joomla default template.

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
I managed to setup the SP Page Builder without any problem...used and play around without any problems...but I still can not find how to deal with the following two details:
- Do I need a special default template as a base? I have Joomla latest with the default templates and I can not find a way to remove those and use the pages that I had created using SPPB.

- Once that I have the pages created using the SPPB editor how I export that to become a template or how I can make the templated that came with the SPPB being the default template in Joomla?

Joomla request template to work, so as a base you can use Helix3 or Helix Ultimate.
Set it as default and then you can enjoy from SPPB pages added to menu.

Pages even with layout are not Joomla Template.
Pages made in SP Page Builder tread as component view only.
Those are two different areas.
I know it may be hard to understand if you are not Joomla experienced.
That's why we always suggest to talk with other person who use Joomla for long time.
I hope in your country there are Joomla Days, or Joomla User Groups or meetings.
Sorry but you cannot transform SP Page Builder into Joomla template.
It's not Template creator but (sub)page builder.

Joomla + one default template - it's must have. It's like car with petrol / gas.
Then you can install and use all others components like ours SP Page Builder.
Here is short movie which was created some time ago, but main concept is still valid

and new one about Helix Ultimate only

Paul..I did managed to make it work after your explanation....I had being playing around and so is working just fine.

Today I found something that it is either a bug or I may be missing something...this is the situation.

- I got a warning that helix did have and update....I did the update and I lost the header..the normal menu at the top and the logo at the front end.

- I did check the menu and the logo and it was there still at helix back end.

I did recover from the backup and all went to the way it was before helix update......I did the update of helix and again...the logo and top menu of the front end is gone....wondering if this a helix bug or I may be missing something on the process?
