    Apply Template

    To apply a template to a drawing, from the CabMaster File menu select Prepare > Apply Templates

    The Apply Template dialog allows you to start a drawing with various items and options preset.

    You can also take an existing drawing and change it to a different template.  Templates let you predefine a company logo, default door styles and kickboard heights for example. When you first create a drawing, you will be prompted to select which template you wish to use.


    You normally create templates without a library i.e. <none>. The reason is so that when you apply the template, the drawings properties are not replaced with those from whichever library you were using at the time. A template should contain the minimum amount of properties it needs to do its job.
