Capture.JPGHow do you change the directory that list your drawing templates?

I do not have permission to save to the default location.

pro_format_dir set in config.pro set to your local folder that has the templates in it.

pro_format_dir c:\ptc_user\user1\formats

      Thank you for the response.   I did try that, but it seems to keep pointing to

the location shown in the original screen capture.

I did however get my permissions changed so that I can save to that location.

The system will still point to the system template folder for drawings. Maybe this needs to be an enhancement request.☺

If you select Brose, it will open your defined folder for the templates.

I would NOT recommend modifying or saving the drawing templates back to the system folder as they get overwritten/deleted when you upgrade!

We don't have this issue. We have pointed this template folder to library in Windchill and is working good.

Thank you.  That seems to have resolved my problem.

The description of the option is a little confusing though.

Not sure what other things it affects but it does point my template list to the desired location.

Thanks again !
