So, I accidentally saved the project I am working on as a template file.  I now need to activate worksets, which it seems is not possible since my file is not an rvt project file.  How can I save this template file with all of my information as an rvt file.  I tried to save as but there is no option.  If I try to open a new project to paste in I lose my grids, sheets- a lot of work!  I am afraid that I have made a big mistake.... can I fix this easily with a save as function?

You prob selected project template radio button when you started the new "project", thats what I did and this happened..because you opened as a template in the first place.

instead you push the  "project" button. but you choose a template to open as the new project....

 THis almost killed me today with frustration.
