drawing templates, SLDDRT or SLDDOT?

Did SW 2017 change the file type of the drawing templates from DRT to DOT?

Today I installed 2017 in an attempt to open a problem imported model. While the install completed, I am unable to use it because the network license manager is the 2016 version and everyone else is on '16 so i didn't want to change it. I also edited a pair of my part drawing files and now when I attempt to add a sheet to drawings I am unable to access the sheet templates. As shown in the views below, if I select open to open a new drawing or template, the browser looks for a .prtdot, .asmdot or .drwdot file. If while in a drawing I attempt to add/change a template by using the properties dialogue box the only options I have are for .drt and .slddrt templates.

     Can anyone help me get to the .dot templates?

 

Thank you
