How do I change the default setting on my print set-up page to black & white instead of automatic?
Welcome to the forum. Open up a new drawing with your drawing template and make the changes to the print settings, then save as drawing template under the same name to over-ride your existing template.
I ran into this same issue in SW 2016, and your fix did not work. Is there another way to do this?
Not that I'm aware of. You might need to contact your VAR.
Instead of opening a new drawing, try opening the template file to edit. Use File - Open and change "All Files" to "Template". This will open the directory where your templates should be stored. If you assigned a custom folder for your templates, you will need to navigate to that folder. Open the template you want to change, make your changes & save.
