  • Create a drawing with your styles.... save it as a template when you make a new drawing use that template.. you can set that template as the default by going into options... type options in the command prompt... if you tile 2 drawings you drag a style from one drawing into the other

    Thanks Chris,

    I Tried that and it does work to some extent. Gets the job done at least!

    I was hoping to find out how to have your own styles saved into the selections area when I set the style, similar to the way "default" is always found.

    I am not sure how to import them into the template file, but I think that this may be a solution.

    Thanks for the reply,

  • I don't use Civil 3D, but I do use it for a platform to run LDD off of, I really don't like how Civil 3D works on it's own. I'm not sure, but you might be able to right-click on your Modelspace and select Options and then scroll over to the Profile tab. But do this only after you have your Styles and Toolbars as you like them. Then hit (I'm going off the top of my head) New and Save it as whatever name you want to call it. This should save it and when you begin opening other projects, just go to Profiles again and double-click on your saved profile. Eventually, as long as you go to the actual drawing(dwg) to open it (instead of opening Civil 3D and choosing which file to open from there), you should see your Style every time.

    I hope that didn't confuse you, and I really hope it works for you.
