Is there a config file option for a standard templates directory, similar to the option pro_format_dir for standard formats? I am aware of the option template_drawing, but we have several templates that we need to choose from.
There are lots of various config options for different directory set ups. For your start parts and assemblies use start_model_dir.
for shetmetal start part use template_sheetmetalpart.
To set your default Part model template use template_solidpart.
you can also save template drawings in your start model dir and when you create a new drw unselect Use default template, on the next dialog box select Use template, any drawing files in your start_model_dir will show in the list. You can also browse for them.
