I do have to work with older drawings from NX8. In the meantime our company has changed to newer methods and templates of the drawing frame. What I wanna do is keep my views and annotations and just change the drawing frame and title block.
I just can create new sheets and copy the views. But unfortunately my annotations will not copy properly.
is there a simple way to do it?
I went through this same process a couple of weeks ago. I found that if you associate an annotation with a view (with the origin tool), it will move to the new sheet with the view. Any annotations that I did not want associated to a particular view, I just cut then pasted to the new sheet and placed them accordingly.

avoiding this sort of problems is one of the reasons why we still use patterns for frame/title block
Thank you for your inputs:
I still keep with the following issues:
to record a macro I need a "step by step" way to record the macro
the solution described above works almost but not 100%
one of the main problems is that I loose refrence text in the title block. So my drawing with reference to DB_Part_Name is lost when I add a second sheet.
We have a VB programs that deletes the Old title block, WE got lucky you put the old title block on it's own layers.
So our VB goes delete everything on layer 250, then import new template part. Then the VB codes imports the new template into the drawing,
Since we are using the NX drawing borders funtion, we have to set the sheet size to "E" before we import the template, then we resize the borders down to "C" or what ever border size we need.
