Default Door Trim Dimensions?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to set default door trim dimensions? I get 6" wide and 1" thick every time I add trim. Heck, that size might have been good in the early 1900s! I want 2-1/4" x 5/8".

@Bruce KiefferHi, select the door tool and then select the door tool preferences and set what you need before creating a door. this will set all the new ones to have that default.

And that only pertains to that particular file, correct?

 

So you'd want to do this in your blank template file to affect doors in future projects?

To set basic parameters of Doors, Windows and other objects, you can set up a standard template for future use –

1. Create a new, blank document (or use a previous template if you have one)

2.  Review the parameters of each object and set them to normal dimensions or values.

3.  Do this for all the tools you want to affect.

4.  Set default line weights, text size and formatting, etc.

5.  Under the File menu, select "Save As Template" - navigate to your User Data and Preferences folder, which is defined under the User Folders pane of Vectorworks Preferences (User/Libraries/Application Support/Vectorworks/2018/Libraries/Defaults/Templates on a Mac - similar for Windows.

6.  Once you save your template, create new documents by selecting "from document template" rather than "create blank document" in the new document dialog box.  Your standard preferences will show up in documents created from this template.
