I added a content editor web part with some custom js into the 'Default New Form' for a list. I then create a list template from that list, but when I create the new list it does not have the content editor that is in my 'Default New Form'.

Is there any way to include the 'Default New Form' in the list template?

I believe this thread has what you need:
