Save As Template

Available in: Plus, Pro Architectural

Clicking on the Save As Template button button  from the File Menu provides the option to save the active drawing in the Template folder. Any drawing saved in the template folder is automatically available for selection as a template in the 'New drawing' dialog box when the New from Template command is selected.

Template dialog box

In the 'save' file dialog box that appears you can enter a name for the new template and save it in the Template folder or browse to a different location. Draft it drawing files are automatically compressed (zipped) to save disk space. More information on templates is available in the Create a Template topic in the 'How to' section of this help file.
