Import template content

Recommended Posts



I have a template file on my computer, that i want to import to an "old" drawing.


So I get all the classes, viewport etc from the template file to the drawing.

Is this possible in one move?

I guess the workflow could look like this.


Update the old drawing to the current vwx version.

Do a Layer import of all the layers you want from the old drawing and make sure you check import layer objects. 

Not tried this, but if you want the sheet layer viewports as well, then go to the old drawing and group all the sheet layer viewports on each sheet together and copy/paste them into new sheet layers in the new drawing.


That should work for you and now you will have the old drawing in your new template!
