Replace Tblock & Border

Is it possible to replace a title block & border in an IDW file from another
template? Found out we used the wrong template on a project & can't figure
how to change it.

Thanks..

Open both source and destination files
Right click on the border in the browser and choose copy switch to destination file and
right click on borders, and choose paste Same with Titleblock.

Further to Kent's instructions - make sure you delete all occurrences of
the Border and Title Block from the destination file.

Kent,

When I right click on the title block or border in the source file browser I
don't get a 'copy' or 'copy switch' option.
I just get 'Delete' & 'Edit Definition' & 'How To' in the RMB menu.

Actually, I just need to change the ANSI Large title block not the border if
that matters.

What am I missing?

Do it on the Titleblock in the Drawing Resources / Titleblocks folder, not the one that
was inserted.

Then as Richard said you will need to be sure it is already deleted from the destination
file before it will paste there.

IV won't let me delete it since it says it's in use.

Have you deleted from the sheet(s) first?

IV won't let you delete from the browser until all references are gone.

Got it...It's a little convoluted but do-able. Where in help is this
documented?

Thanks!

I give up, where?

I would have learned this just like you, by lurking around and asking
questions on this NG.

I find on-line help is fantastic if you already know the answer,
otherwise you don't know how to find it.

Just give me a good, solid, thorough, boring manual to let me be
productive during 'Throne Time' (he says beating his head against a
wall). Honest to goodness, back in the days when software came with
manuals, I used to read them.

You are right on the mark. Books are soooo much eaiser to flip through while hunting down a solution or explaination. They are transportable (nix the laptop solution on a beach - sand, bright sun, water.....). Bookmarks remain in place until you remove them.

Printing from the help is a sorry second to a good book.
