  1. Hey, I am trying to create new drawing templates for 3 different professional disciplines that will be working together on a project using National CAD Standards. I have the layers, text styles, and dim styles created that will be used, and it's all saved to a .dwt file. The issue is that when I want to add text or a dimension, it inserts on a specific (rogue) layer and you have to match properties or manually change it to put it on the correct layer. I need to know how to change that default so that it inserts on the correct layer FIRST. The current default layer is only accepted by the National CAD Standards for the architectural discipline. It would be embarrassing to send out templates for the rest of these folks with this built-in annoyance. I have tried starting from other templates, and even the original acad template, but it always creates that layer when using text or dim commands. ERG! I just want to fix it. Thanks in advance...
