Merge Into Template?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Is there a way to merge a file into an existing template file? I have a template file that has all my stock symbols, classes etc that helps my workflow tremendously. Whenever I get a drawing from a client though it is a pain in the ass to access all my favorite symbols and such. Is there a way to take an existing file and open it into a template?

Open your template file

Start to create a new design layer

In the New Design Layer dialog box you will see that "Create a New Design Layer" is checked.

You want "Import Design Layers" to be checked.

Then click on the Choose… button to the right of "Import Design Layers". Navigate to the drawing you want to import.

Select all the source drawing

Back in the New Design Layer dialog box make sure that "Import Layer Objects is checked"

Select all the layers you want to bring in and click OK.
