Starts a new drawing from a selected drawing template file.

Access Methods


 Menu: Application menu New Drawing
 Toolbar: Standard 


QNEW starts a new drawing from the current default drawing template file and folder path specified in the Options dialog box on the Files tab. You can set the default drawing template file to any drawing template file or to None.

When a default drawing template file is set to None or is not specified, QNEW displays the Select Template File dialog box (a standard file selection dialog box).

The behavior of the QNEW command is determined by the STARTUP system variable.

If the system variable, FILEDIA, is set to 0 instead of 1, a Command prompt is displayed. If you set FILEDIA to 0, this prompt is displayed regardless of the Startup setting.
