Symbol Builder Tamplate

I was wondering if there is a way to set your default location for your "Attribute Template" in symbol builder. I'm having to locate it every time I go into it. In previous versions of AUTOCAD the default was the one i used and didn't need to locate it every time.

Add the path to the project's Properties > Project Settings tab > Schematic Libraries paths. Move it to the top so it is the first path. AutoCAD Electrical will use the first path if it contains templates, if not then it moves on to the next path in the list until it finds one with templates.


This should not affect symbol insertion since whenever you insert a symbol, AcadE looks in each path until it finds the selected symbol.
