How do I change it to third angle?
RC on the sheet properties in the feature tree. You will see a selection for third angle projection there.
Is there a global setting in the tools/options to make future drawings set this way?
Change what I told you in your drawing templates. Then save them as sheet formats and this will come in like this for all future drawings.
making custom templats is the only way to have the samething again and again and again...... for parts, drawings and assemblies!!!
Under System Ooptions->Display there's a choice to make First / Third Angle
There is also a Registry entry First Angle
Tried to change both to see if they influencing one another and they are not
No matter what their value is my default drawing is third angle
Tried to change the angle to first and save the sheetformat and/or the drawing template and still
any new drawing is Third angle
Ziv Popper Make sure that you are using the template you updated for your drawing template. (And make sure that it did actually save. Check the time stamp.) Check your template settings in your system options.
Also, make sure that any drawings that had already been created are set to the projection angle you want.

That's probably because when you save a sheet format it doesn't automatically update in any drawing templates that use that sheet format (see What's the difference between a sheet format and drawing template?). If you'll start a new drawing, and then Reload the sheet format, it should be right. After doing that save this drawing template and then new drawings should have the correct setting.
Just to add.... The system option that Ziv referenced is only for the 4-viewport display that looks like this:
It is not intended to affect drawings.
Hi guys thanks for your answers
However I know and tried all the above
And still Every new drawing starts with 3rd angle and not First as the ISO standard requires
Please post your template. We will fix it for you.
I don't know how to upload my template here so here's a link on google drive
Drawing.drwdot - Google Drive
Here's the fixed template.
Please make sure you're picking the right template when you start a new drawing.
You need to put this new template file into your templates directory or it won't be seen.
Don't use this dialog. You can't tell what template you're using:
Hit the Advanced button to get this dialog:
THANKS It works.
Can you please explain what did you change in the template?
So simple yet evasive
Thank you for your time and effort
right mouse in the drawing and select properties and a window pops up click the 3rd angle dot...done
And make sure you change your Drawing Template with Scott's advice so it doesn't happen again.
Set the drafting standard you need: Document Properties->Drafting Standard->ANSI
