2. Having made your selection click on the red Actions button in the top right hand corner of the page. Then click Report/Export at the top of the the actions menu;

To do this, hover your cursor over the template option and click on Actions to the right which will produce a drop down menu. The options available to you are Edit, Duplicate, and Delete Report.
