Updating tool palettes

I am experiencing a problem, i have updated the drawing file with the paper templates which has the paper sizes as blocks.  I have deleted the Paper template palette and gone via the design centre to create the updated tool palette which should hav eth eupdated paper template blocks.  For some reason it is still inserting the old blocks even though the new source file has the amended details.  Am i missing something or it this a  problem ?  I have also tried setting it up under a different file name , the mind boggles??

 

Any help would be appreciated

 

Regards

Colin

If your DWG file already contains an old block with the same name, all you get is the old block if you simply drag and drop from a TP.

Find out, then replace it (or RENAME the old block).

Thanks Dean, it worked,  i looked at purging and saw the A4 template was still there in the drawing template when i loaded it, so i just purged it and then click and dragged from the tp  and it lay down the updated paper template.

 

Thanks Again

Regards
