Bare essentials, howto get rid of

A while ago I updated the IDE to version 1.6.3. I regret this day ever since, libaries gone, attiny cores dont work anymore...

Every time when I open a new sketch, I see the bare essential sketch in front of me. I find this to be extremely annoying. the upper accolades are not in my prefered postion and I always have to delete the comment // put your main code here, to run repeatedly: and // put your setup code here, to run once:

To put the accolades right and remove the comment actually takes more time than to type

void setup() { }

void loop() { }

How can I get rid of the bare essentials sketch, I cant see the option under preferences.

modify the example sketch

C:\Program Files (x86)\arduino-x.y.z\examples\01.Basics\BareMinimum\Bareminimum.ino

with notepad to your likes

Much better thx alot :sunglasses:
