Its been a long time since I set up a border. I have drawn the new border in the Model space (it is a Portrait border) how do I save it into the Layout's????

Curious as to why you just didn't draw your new titleblock and border in a paper space layout to begin with?  One option would be to use the Change Space command (CHSPACE).

Like ReMark just make it 1:1 in the layout paper size less margins and I would suggest lower left at 0,0.

Once you have wrangled it into Paperspace, and set the location as suggested, check and make sure that it is on the appropriate layer.

This would also be the correct time to check a few other considerations, such as Dimension Style or styles you might generally favor,

default Layers that you might wish to include in your new Template, current Text style, Leader Styles, etc.

Personally I would also make sure that my Current Layer was set to 0.

 

Once you feel pretty good about it, SAVEAS  .DWT and give it an appropriate name.

Should you want to make this your new Default QNEW drawing, that can be done as in the screenshot.

How can I change the paper orientation in the Layout so I have a Portrait Layout?
