setup document preferences - how to change the default

Recommended Posts

It has been a while since I've had to do this - I don't remember how to set up (change) the defaults of the document setup.

in other words, I would like that every time I open a new document that the new document opens in 1:50 instead of 1:48, in meters instead of feet and inches, etc.

Setup a blank drawing with your preferred settings and save it as a Template with the name Default. In either VW12 or 2008, it should be stored in the Templates folder in the VectorWorks folder.
