I do have drafting details setup like this and you can just copy the views from sample to your project.  File / insert from file / views

 

They can not be model details.

Hi,

Small suggestion...

Try to open the template file and do save as and name it different.

You can find considerable file size reduced!!!!!!!!

May be not productive but still it will work to reduce file size.

Thats is a good suggestion.  I tried it, and it did reduce it by 1.5 meg.

I tried it as well and it did work; I would just like to understand how it does.

everytime you do something revit has to remember it, doing a 'save as' clears that information, most programs (word, photoshop, etc) drop that information when you close the file revit seems not to.  At least thats my opinion.

Lunch .. that's part of the magic of Revit's file sharing... it only writes the changes to a file - saving band width and save time... so it continues to grow.  A save as writes the whole file new ... doesn't just copy it - thus it's compacted.
