NX10. adding a drag and drop drafting template

Legend
Legend

Awhile back I had a Drawing template on my flyout bar that I could drag into my display area and it would fire up the drawing template. I never really messed with it much as I didnt want to take the time to setup all of the various sizes.

 

Now in NX10 I see the titleblock and borders automaticly resize, but I cannot rememeber how to have the template on the flyout menu. any suggestions?

You have to make sure your drawing template is included in a .pax file, and then you can add that .pax file as a custom palette to your Resource Bar. Here's a link to a procedure in the Help collection that explains how to do this:

If you create a drawing template using the Mark as Template command, then the command will automatically add the template to a .pax file for you. Here's a link that describes that process:
