did you tried following options?



Also, you can go to ...\Creo 2.0\Common Files\M070\templates directory, move system drawing templates somewhere else and place your templates there.

Also try pro_format_dir.

There are a number of config options that control default locations. SOme point to specific files, others to a folder containing the files:

bom_format - text file for the internal BOM function (model tab in assy mode)

drawing_setup_file - default drawing setup file

mdl_tree_cfg_file - model tree config file

pro_colormap_path - folder containing color map files

pro_dtl_setup_dir - folder for drawing setup files

pro_format_dir - folder for drawing formats

pro_group_dir - folder for user defined feature files

pro_library_dir - folder for the standard parts library

pro_material_dir - folder for material files

pro_note_dir - folder for standard drawing notes

pro_sheet_met_dir - folder for sheet metal bend tables

pro_symbol_dir - folder for drawing symbols

start_model_dir - folder for model templates or "start parts"

template_designasm - default assy template

template_sheetmetalpart - default sheet metal part template

template_solidpart - default part template

There isn't one, oddly, for drawing templates.  There is for formats, but not for templates.  I believe it defaults to the specification for start_model_dir.
