Hi all, I am facing a problem. I ma using INV 12 and my tamplate style is not working. I mean when I go into the template location thru window explorer and double click the template .idw. it works. all the dimeison color and thicknes are gud but when i open it thru inventor, the lines color and thickness are something else as if these have never been modified. in the project window all links are correct. Any idea why is it happening. Please advise. s.k

I would try opening the IDW through Windows Explorer and do a Save-As> Save Copy as Template to your Template directory. It really sounds like you're picking up a file in a different directory.

Thanks Blair,


it worked.


However the surpising part is that I was picking up the right file from the right directory. I have noticed one thing that was creating problem. I reckon the person who had created template didn't save it as a template in the directory. He must have saved it as just SAVE AS. I have noticed that on save as the template doesn't work when opened thru inventor. However thru window it is working fine.


I couldn't understand the concept behind it. Fnally on saving it as template is working. :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy:
