Changing Drawing Active Standard

I'm new to the style library and I'm trying to figure out how to take an existing drawing that was created on one standard, and changing it to another standard I just created. The new standard has different dimension styles, text, and layers. I've added all the styles to my style library and I've set the new standard to the active standard in both the styles and standards editor and the document settings. If I create a new view, it comes in on the new standard, but the existing views are still on the old. How to I get the existing views on the new standard?

Hi Brian,

Yes, the rule is that new style just is applied to the new object, and it isn't applied to the existed object. The intent of this rule is to allow various objects to use different styles in one drawing.

If you want to use new styles to exsited views, you have to select the views and assign the new styles to them again.

How can I do that? When I select a view, is not possible to apply the desired standard.
