Drawing

Can a drawing which was created using First Angle be converted into Third Angle automatically, somehow?

The projection angle is controlled by the detail setup file.
projection_type THIRD_ANGLE

I have my doubts that changing this will change existing views.

And of course it will not change the symbol in the drawing format

I will be waiting to hear what the verdict is on this one. My guess is "no."

Somehow I laugh at the remark "it will not change the symbol." I am pretty
sure that was a joke.

Not automatically. Changing the projection in the drawing detail file will only affect new views, it is not retroactive. You can just drag projection views to the opposite side of the parrent view. Obviously you will have to do some moving around of views to get it to fit.


Alternately, you could change the projection setting, project new views in the same directions as the existing views and then switch the old view dimensions to the new views. However, there is a good chance some things in the old views will not be visible in the new views.


And of course, you will have to manually change the projection symbol, if it part of your format you may have to replace the format.
