    It would seem that a detail has been missed from the article - you need to enable the feature first, from the Settings of your Gmail inbox. You can do this by clicking on the cog icon in the top right, then choosing "Settings".

    From this menu click Gmail Labs and scroll down till you find Canned Responses then click Enable. Last of all scroll to the very bottom of the page and click Save Changes. Your inbox should refresh, and you will now find the feature in your compose window.

    Hope this helps, let us know!
