Using the Organiser to make a Picture Package Nov 16, 2016 14:44:30 GMT

Can someone please tell me whether the creation of Picture Packages has changed materially since, say, PSE 11? And if there have been, when did they take place?
At the end of 2015 I was busy putting PSE 11 and Window 8.1 to good use digitising and generally tidying up my catalogue of family images etc, by leaning heavily on the Pictures Package (PP) facility. I first made use of PP with PSE 9 creating my own templates with guides to assist placement, saving the finished template and putting the Package away in a separate folder until I was ready to print them.
This work had to cease in early 2016 when I ran into technical problems which meant reconstructing the catalogue. That labour is now completed (I hope) and normal operations have been resumed.
However, the big sticking point I have encountered centres around my inability to recall how to get the Package operation to work as I think it used to do and my stubborn reluctance to accept that what I was so familiar with may not now be available.
My specific problems appear to focus on the Prints window where I find it impossible to get my own template to fill the page; nor can I find a way to drag and drop images, which would move to the centre spot around which I could play musical chairs by dragging and dropping until the template was populated in the way I wanted it.
I cannot be precise about when I first used a Package but my notes show that PSE 9 was involved at an early stage, followed by PSE 11 & 13. Windows was used throughout; Windows 10 and PSE 14 were introduced during the reconstruction work.
Any help would be much appreciated.
