User Template

N/A
Ricky,
I downloaded the new version last evening - the download went smoothly. The
only uncertainty during install arose when the software finds files with the
same name it gives choices of whether to replace: the file or all files
(i.e. yes: yes to all; no; no to all). Hitting the 'yes to all' was a hairy
moment!
First impressions are good.
I have designed my own simple 'background sheet' and would like to install
this as a template and have Solidedge open all new files using this
template. The 'help' file does not help so, could you provide line by line
instructions on how to achieve this in your inimitable way.
Sincere thanks,
Roger Hurrell

Roger,
A template is a starting point for a new file.
When a new file is created, it is a copy of the original template.
There is no association back to the template.
If you want to change the background sheet, you will have to copy the new
geometry out of your template and then paset it onto the background sheet of
each old file.
Regards,
Rick B.

Ricky,
I'm not sure that I understand.
I created a modified A4 sheet as my template - modified because when printed
I can accurately scale from the sheet.
I have also created my own background information for this sheet: file name,
date drawn etc which the software automatically populates.
When starting a new file I would like the software to use my template and
background instead of, as it does now, opening an A2 sheet with the
Solidedge default background.
Can this be done?
Sincerely,
Roger

Roger,
When you start a new drawing just select your customized template instead of the
default. I've also created a custom template and do just that when I start a new
drawing. I put the customized template in the "More" folder which is in the "Template"
folder. See attached image. Hope this helps some.

Once again many thanks. Your posts are a joy to read perhaps you were once

comfortable like that old pair of slippers.
I shall again follow your guidance.
