Changing the default sheet size in draft when inserting a new drawing sheet...

When I go to the tabs at the bottom of the page in Drafting and "Insert" a new drawing sheet, the size is defaulted to D-wide. 

 

How can I change this setting to A size, so I don't have to go to sheet set up and change it?

 

Thanks!

In the Sheet Setup dialog, set the size to A and click the Save Defaults button at the bottom of the dialog. This should do the trick.

Just a little further to @Tushar's spot on answer.....you'll need do this in your template[s] if you want it to be perpetual.

@SeanCresswell I found that spot on answer after a full Horizontal + Vertical scan of the Solid Edge Options dialog.  Smiley LOL

 

@schonbek Those lovely tweets, but none since two years, except the wonderful SEU13 video.

Thanks for the Complement, I liked sharing but we are now discouraged from tweating. 

Here is a fixture we recently built.  This is the concept drawing developed in SE for approval.

 

I don't consider it to be massive in size but SE was getting pretty slow.  I'm not sure if it SE7 or the textures and reflections that slow it down. 

Plus one very frustration issue I have is SE lossing the location of my textures.  The part path is correct in the description but I have to reselect the File.  This is very annoying and I waste alot of time fixing this.
