    How do I set the default template for a drawing?

    Otis Clapp

      I feel like this should be something simple, but I cannot figure it out.  How do I change the default template when making a drawing?  I have saved the sheet format that I like and I know how to load it, but I don't want to do that.  I would like it if when I created a new drawing, my format would come up automatically.

       

      Here is what I have done so far.

       

      Saved sheet format (.slddrt)

       

      Looked in the system options and found the "default Templates"... but I can't browse to my format, and I can't enter its file path into the path bar.  In fact the file that it is pointed at is a .drwdot file... I don't even know how to make one of those.

       

      It is frustrating.  It seems like it should be very straight forward, but I haven't seen how to set this with the questions I have been asking google (found a lot on how to save the sheet format and load it from properties... good and all, but not what I am looking for.

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
