creating drawing formats

I'm pretty new to SW but came from an Inventor background of 15 or so years. I've been tasked with setting up custom formats and using properties to preset values as much as possible and it just isn't sinking in. Between the .drwdot files and the .slddrt files, I'm struggling. To make it worse, I had to have screwed something up cause now, when I try to create a new drawing I get this showing up.

What used to show up was the list of formats. You know....a-landscape, a-portrait....and I would pick which one or size I needed. Anyone have a cue as to where I went wrong. It seems to show me a list of the .drwdot files instead of the .slddrt files. Here's a list of the .slddrt files that I used to be able to choose from when creating new drawings.

Can ANYONE help me figure out what I did wrong? Maybe provide info on how I should proceed? I'd sure appreciate the help. Thanks in advance...
