    "Make drawing from part" and "create new part" grabbing default templates

    Daniel Cook

      I have custom templates set up for my part, assembly and drawing files.

       

      When I go File>new (drawing, part, assembly), this works fine and grabs the template with my drafting standard, units, title blocks, etc..

       

      However, when I use the "create drawing from part" option when I have a part open, the drawing loaded has my title block, but defaults to different units and uses a different drafting standard.

       

      The same thing happens when you insert a part in context. My part template is set up for IPS units, and when you go File>new part, it does indeed open this template properly. When you "insert new part" into assembly, it creates a part with MMGS units.

       

      Is there a setting that I'm missing that forces SW to grab templates from the same location regardless of how the part/drawing creation is initiated?
