Drawing Templates? No way to point to different folder?

Drawing Templates? No way to point to different folder?

When you create a new drawing, you get a list of templates that PTC
includes in a local folder.

Is there a config.pro setting to point this somewhere else? Or are we stuck
with putting stuff in the local folder?

If so, that is terrible.

Oops. I just realized you were asking for templates NOT formats.
I think Antonius has it correct with start_model_dir

Start_model_dir points to a folder on disk that contains the start parts and drawing templates.

You can also use Template_drawing to point to a particular drawing template, using full path name, to be used as your default template.
We have it pointing to our C-size part drawing template file.

Thank you,
