All templates read something like
"you need a main document. include with "\input{filename}"

This is frustrating for new users! They need an example which they can compile right away. Why don't make it a template?
E.g. this standard example (http://www.eng.cam.ac.uk/help/tpl/textprocessing/Tutorial/demo1.tex.html)

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{a4}
\begin{document}
% Add a table of contents and a list of figures
\section{Simple Text}

Words are separated by one or more spaces. Paragraphs are separated by
one or more blank lines. The output is not affected by adding extra
spaces or extra blank lines to the input file.
\begin{figure}[htbp]
\vspace{1cm}
\caption{1cm of space}
\end{figure}
Double quotes are typed like this: ``quoted text''.
Single quotes are typed like this: `single-quoted text'.

Long dashes are typed as three dash characters---like this.

\subsection{A Warning or Two}

If you get too much space after a mid-sentence period---abbreviations
like etc.\ are the common culprits)---then type a backslash followed by
a space after the period, as in this sentence.

\subsection{Another Warning}
Remember, don't type the 10 special characters (such as dollar sign and
backslash) except as directed! The following seven are printed by
typing a backslash in front of them: \$ \& \# \% \_ \{ and \}.
The manual tells how to make other symbols.
\begin{figure}[htbp]
\vspace{1in}
\caption{1in of space}
\end{figure}

\end{document}

    Ok, something like that is available under "New project". Anyways, very frustrating if you are not pointed to it directly.
