Creating Page Type Preset Manager

I am trying to create some new page types to add to Site Sculptor using the preset Manager, I have created .dwt files and guess from the options given I need to export these as xml in order to import them to Site Sculptor.
When I have the .dwt page loaded in Dreamweaver, the option to export as xml is greyed out, this is stopping me from making any progress.
If you have sucessfully managed to create a Site Sculptor Custom Page Type please can you let me know how you managed this, I have checked these forums and Adobe but nothing there either, this makes me think I am barking up the wrong tree?
I could do with any assistence asap thanks in advance

2) Customize the page to appear as you would like the page type.

3) Select WebAssist > Build Site > Create Site Sculptor Page Type.

4) Enter name in Page Type field.

5)Click OK.

Hello Jason
Thanks for getting back to me,
I will attempt the following and let you know how it goes, my primary reservation is that Dreamweaver does not like me getting back into the Site Sculptor files after I have built the Site.

1/ Build the site in Site Sculptor based on my Dreamweaver Template and CSS Menu Writer file.
2/ Open a Site Sculptor Page Prior to installation? then Edit and Save it.
3/ Open this saved file and Export the file as XML and Save it
4/ Use Preset Manager to import the XML file based on the Site Sculptor page
5/ Save the new Site Sculptor Page type and Name It.
6/ Delete the whole Site Sculptor Site.
7/ Build New Site Sculptor Site using the newly created Page Types

Would this be about right?

Thanks
Steve

the steps in your outline:
3/ Open this saved file and Export the file as XML and Save it
4/ Use Preset Manager to import the XML file based on the Site Sculptor page

should be replaced with the steps from my previous reply for how to create the page type.
