Problem:

The list/library template you just created by saving List or library as a template is not showing up when you try to create a new list/library based on that template.

 

One thing to check first is to go to the List templates Gallery (Site settings-> List templates under web designer galleries).

If the template in question does NOT have product Version and Feature ID assigned. Then the problem might be that the ParserEnabled property is set to false on that site.

 

Resolution:

Using PowerShell , set the ParserEnabled property to true.

$web = Get-SPWeb <url of web>
$web.ParserEnabled = $true
$web.Update()

when developing a custom SPD 2010 workflow activity using Visual Studio , sometimes you can get an error saying “"Cannot find property named PROPERTYNAME on activity type ACTIVITYNAME" when trying to assign a parameter to a workflow activity. This can especially occur if the parameter is newly added to the activity (I.e. your previous version of the activity did not have this parameter or  it had it with a different name.

a solution might be to close the SPD and clear the cache at:

Windows 7:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache
Delete all the files and folders in this folder

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SharePoint Designer
Delete all the files and folders in this folder

For some reason when creating a custom ribbon action with Visual studio it seems that no matter what you do, the ribbon button or action are never updated.

The Solution that worked for me is

1) retract the solution

2) delete the feature from the Visual studio project

3) Create a new feature in the visual studio project and add the custom ribbon action

4) deploy the new feature.
