Create drawing templates
All new drawing files
are created with a template. A default template is provided for
each drafting standard or you can create your own templates.
You can create a template
from a drawing, preserving annotations on drawing sheets, such as
custom symbols, notes, and revision tables. In addition, your borders,
title blocks and view definitions can be retained in the template.
View annotations and general notes are not saved in a template.
default drawing templates are named standard.[file extension] and
are located in the Templates folder. To replace the default template,
rename standard.[file extension] to avoid
deleting it, and then replace it with the customized template named standard.[file

- When you create a drawing from a template,
all AutoCAD data is removed, except for block definitions. All block
instances remain on any sheet (excluding the model space) in a template.
You can place AutoCAD title blocks or borders on a sheet and use
them in Autodesk Inventor. Any AutoCAD data that needs to remain on a sheet
must be placed into a block.
- When using a style library, style definitions
are refreshed from the library when creating a file using a template.
