Update Drawing Template in Inventor

I've been trying to find a way to do this and have come up with nothing but any suggestions would be welcome.

 

Here's the problem:

 

I have a drawing template with a custom title block that I use for manufacture drawings. However, some of my older projects used a different title block from an older template. I want to change these older drawings over so they use the newer title block. Is there a way to simply update the template those drawings use to the newer one? Such as a 'change template' option in the management options? Can't see anything myself but any help would be appreciated.

Try Auto Drawing Resources 32/64Bit 'googled', I have used this in the past.

That's pretty much what I was after. Many thanks for that.

Your welcome:smileyhappy:, I have had the particular joy of a customer wanting their own logo placed on drawings they 'paid for' another one of those fun non chargeable administrative tasks.

The Drawing Resource Transfer Wizard installed with Inventor will do this for you (Start menu > Inventor 20xx > Tools).

Easiest way, copy/paste title block from the new template to the older files.

Can't see that option. Sure it's under the tools ribbon?

No not within Inventor, use the start menu.

 

 Windows Start Menu, Program files, Autodesk, Autodesk Inventor 2013, Tools
