changing the template

Okay I did a dumb thing and followed the example in the tutorial and used the blank template. But what I want is the novel template. Now that I’ve copied in about 10 scenes, I’d like to switch to the novel template. Is there a way to do this? I tried save as, which seemed to offer this option, but when I opened it back up, it just came back in the blank template. I’m using 1.9 in Win7. Thanks.
