You could do it incontext.  Just select one of
the steel template files as the template when creating an incontext
part.

I
am curious boilerchip as to exactly how you are using your "templates". I am
assuming that you never make your parts in assembly mode, but rather make your
parts in part mode and then bring them into your assembly. Or is there a way
you can build your parts in assembly mode using the save as
theory?

So what about part numbers, descriptions, and length with these templates. How does that all work when trying to create the Parts List in the .idw?

Since each is saved as a separate file you'd need
to manually enter the info into each part.  (some info which is common to
all steel shapes could be pre-entered into the template) but unique info would
need to be changed.

When you say "info which is common to all steel shapes" you mean info which is common to all sizes and shapes, don't you? If that is the case, I don't think anything is common as far as part numbers, descriptions, and lengths go.

I was just thinking out loud.  Maybe something
like: vendor or cost center etc...but I agree not a lot would be
common...
