Overall drafting standard not updating layers on existing drawings in SW2014

We have a lot of drawings with slightly different Overall drafting standards. Some dimensions will be in a different font or on a different layer. We have now decided on a company wide drafting standard for font and layer. I have set everything in the Document Properties tab and saved to an external file. When I open an old drawing in document properties I load from external file and point it to the new overall drafting standard I saved. The dimension font will now change but all the layers have not been updated. Now everything is on the none layer. I have changed the document layer to be per standard but that does not change anything. My template works correctly with font and layer for new drawings but 99% of what we do is a copy of a previous design. We are using Solidworks 2014.
