Hi Jean, a few thoughts.

Categorising your capture templates can help a lot with this I think.
See [1].

IMO just styling it nicer can make it easier to use. For instance, I
find symbols and colour help with at-a-glance use. Also see [1].

This sounds like a good idea IMO 👍.

Eh, personally I'm not convinced this is the way to go. I find
category use is sufficiant to keep a number of templates well-organised
and accesible.

All the best,

Timothy.
