No. You can save the "drawing standard" and open that up, but as for all the other options, that is not possible on a part file.
There is a simple way to do that.
1. Create new part with new template.
2. Isert your old part (menu insert->part)
3. Choose to transfer all entities and choose option "Break link to original part".
4. click OK
5. Delete folder from tree.
Thats all. You have old part on new template.
This one works extremely well for singe files but has anyone found a way to run it as a batch operation. PAC4SWX ran macros in this way quite successfully but the excel-based template changer won't meet this criteria. Does anyone know of a macro to do this same task ?
Awesome that worked beautifully. Thanks for your help!!!!!
Thanks Stefan :-)
Wonderfoul!! Thank you!!
Which method is the better/preferred method, the insert -> part, or the excel macro?
And are these still valid for SW2013 SP4.0?
Sorry for the thread revival.
Edit: Links are dead for the macro. I'll try to find it through other means.
The excel file probably wouldn't help much as it doesn't have many of the newer options (last I used it, I had to add some options manually) I would say you should now use the "Overall drafting standard" option to set your Document Properties (Parts, Assemblies, Drawings)
Edit: Links are dead for the macro.
Sorry there was a typo in the link, just fixed that.
But as Paul said the excel is good to work till 2008 but was not updated for latest versions.
Also check if BatchProcessXpress works for you.
