Greetings.

I have been searching for help on Transfer Project Standards - View Templates.  However the steps I have found have not resolved my issue. 

The file I am trying to transfer from is a Central Model.  It had several CAD files linked into it.  Here are the steps I have taken so far. 

  • I have detached from central and linked the detached model into a new file.  Bound and ungrouped to make the elements live. 
  • I have deleted all elements from the (linked) model
  • I have removed all CAD links
  • purged /audited the model
  • deleted all unnecessary views

At each of the above steps, I attempted to transfer the view templates and filters.  The filters transfer to the new file but never the view templates. 

There are several view templates that I would like to transfer to our next model AND transfer into our new company template model.

I am stumped.  Because this is a Central Model, I cannot save it as a template file.  View Te,mplates are a key component to our View Management strategy.  I would hate to have to document and recreate all these templates, again. 

If anyone can offer additional assistance I'd be quite grateful.

You can not transfer linked file settings....

Instead, you could open the file with the settings, delete all model views and 2D elements, link your other file then bind ... PITA but it would work.  I would probably just redo them.

WW.

Thank you for your response, but I have tried this and still, only the Filters transfer.  This would be a MAJOR pitA ... I have +20 View Templates.

You open the file with the view templates.... so you now have the correct ones - right?  FOR OBVIOUS REASONS - VIEW TEMPLATE SETTINGS FOR LINKED FILES IS PROJECT AND LINKED FILE SPECIFIC - so if you were planning on deleting these linked files - that is a no! (AND YOU DIDN'T SAY YOU WANTED TO DIO THAT)  - Then - Delete this projects model elements.....

 

Now that you have a "TEMPLATE" - not really but it has your view template settings and your linked files.

 

Link then Bind in your new model and assign the templates.

Thank you for this explanation - it helps.  I believe that I have tried this, but I will try it again this evening, following these precise directions.
