Does anyone know what file I need to change so that the I do not have to change the drawing config settings with every new drawing that I create?

The easiest way to do this for a project, so that
all new drawings in a project get the same configuration, is after configuring
the drawing to the way you like it, select the 'Compare Dwg and Prj
Settings' option.  Thi soption is found under the 'Electrical->Project'
pull-down menu or under the 'Config Drawing' flyout.

 

This command will allow you to compare the
differences between the current drawing and the project default settings and
change the project settings to match the current drawings settings.  Then
every new drawing created in this project will get these settings.

If you want to perminantly set your config
default you may either manually edit the
WD_M block (this is the config block
that gets inserted on your drawings)
you are using, or set your config
in a drawing and then in REPORTS, go to
SWAP WD_M, UPDATE WD_M. (the instructions
are straightforward) This will give you
a default config for all your drawings

A very common practice also is to create and use a
template drawing.  This is the process that is recommended and shown in the
training classes.
