Setting the default 'zones' origin for pre 2014 files

We have recently upgraded from SolidWorks 2013 to 2016 and I've taken this opportunity to update our drawing templates and sheet formats and have included the automatic zones feature.  Our standard zone grids have the origin in the upper left and this works great when creating a new drawing. However whenever we open an old (2013) drawing and update the sheet format, the zone origin always defaults to the lower right and we have to manually go into Tool>Options>Document Properties to change the zone origin to the upper left.


My question is, is there any setting somewhere within SolidWorks that can set the default the zone origin to the upper left whenever someone opens a file where zones didn't exist?  That way when someone does update the sheet format, the zones will count in the right direction (left to right & top to bottom).
