XML defaults in IDW files

I was wondering if anyone had a solution to help with a small problem of mine.


I am currently using Autodesk Inventor 2013, but I noticed this same issue back when I used 2011 as well.


I created custom borders and title blocks for work, and have gotten those to a default template that I can open as a new IDW file on command, but the XML files used for that IDW are still linked to the default files located in the design data folder.


I have saved my company's custom settings such as line weights, dimensioning defaults, tables, etc. as a STYXML file, and have resorted to simply importing my company's defaults whenever I create a new IDW file, but I was wondering if and how to "re-link" the IDW file that I open to use my company's default settings instead of Inventor's default settings and then needing to import the STYXML every time.


If anyone can provide, or simply point me to a location where I can find step-by-step instructions to do this, it would be appreciated.


Thank you.
