Moving old plans to a new template

Recommended Posts

So I have a old plan that was drawn on a old template. I understand that if I just copy and paste it and rename it it will open up just fine in X12, but then I have to reset all my defaults, walls, windows, floors etc...Is there a way to copy and paste the plan into a new template?  I tried to open the plan in X12 and import default setting but it only changes a few settings.

What are you trying to do - your post is a bit confusing.

Edit area (All Floors)

 

Defaults are saved with the plan file.

Because if I open the plan in X12 it keeps the old defaults. Chief said there is a way of doing it but it would require a training session. I figured it cant be too hard.

Good point...Perhaps Glenn's method above?

I am still not 100% clear about what you want to achieve.

It sounds like you want to use an old plan, but use all your new defaults.

Here is another guess.

Open the plan in X12.

File>Import Default Settings

Import the defaults from your template plan - you can select the defaults that you want to import.

My guess is that some of your cabinets are using the default material and some are not using the default material - ie, you have edited the material on some cabinets.

You can always select all the cabinets and change the materials to use the defaults.
