Default layers and settings for template

Hi

 

Is it possible to use default layers for template? I'm trying to achieve a template that has predefined layers and settings to fasten my job. But if i start a new drawing and choose my predefined template, all layers are black (allthough in template file the layers are with different colors). The same with text size, tolerance precision etc.

 

What am I doing wrong, or it isn't possible? Really time consuming to edit layers and settings with every new drawing. Style editing is allowed in project file.

Hi!

 

You have to create a new style, save the style and save the file as template.

 

GO to manage, edit Styles (1) and create a new style... can be a copy from the standard and then edit it. Save the Style (2) and save this edited document as a template.
