you will need to start a new drawings and bring all the families you want to this drawings, once you are happy with your settings, (families, line types, object style...) save as a template. just let revit know the location of this template, so when you open a new drawings it will use this template. setting up the template file the way you want it is probably the most important part of starting a project, a good template will save you alot of trouble, will take a couple or so projects to get it right... good luck

eldados is very right! i am a newbie too, and i am slowly building up a template, as we do projects. can i suggest it takes a bit more than two projects? but it is so important to keep updating it, as revit encourages constant learning which can be incorporated into the template. in my office we constantly tell each other about stuff so i can bring it into the template. but as a bit of advise to other beginners like myself - just start a project, learn as you go, and be stunned by revit's ease and power. you'll be daunted like hell, but within a few days, the project will be good enough to show your client.
