          From the Help file; add text to view once on predefined views in a template.

          Predefined Views

          You can define a view in a drawing sheet and then populate the view. You can save a drawing document with predefined views as a document template.

          To insert a predefined view into a drawing:

          1. In a drawing document, click Predefined View on the Drawing toolbar, or click Insert, Drawing View, Predefined.

          2. Click in the graphics area to place the view.

          3. Set options in the PropertyManager.

          4. Click OK .

            You can populate the view as you insert it, or you can populate it later.

          You can add P to a predefined view. For example, if you insert a front view, you can project top and right views to create a predefined Standard 3 View. Projected views are automatically oriented and aligned to the original view.rojected Views

          You can copy and paste predefined views.

          To populate predefined views:

          • Drag. Drag a model from the FeatureManager design tree of an open part or assembly document into the drawing document. All available predefined views are populated.

          • Insert Model. Right-click in a predefined view and select Insert Model. In the Insert Model PropertyManager, select a model from the Open documents list, or click Browse and browse to a model file. The view and all its related views (such as projected views) are populated when you click OK .

          • Select or Browse. Select a predefined view. In the PropertyManager, under Insert Model, select a name from the Part/Assembly list of models open in the current session, or click Browse and browse to a model file. The view and all its related views (such as projected views) are populated when you click OK .

            This functionality isn't possible out of the box.  However, you could write a macro that that does this for either all or selected views.
