In this guide, we will look at how to assign your company template to open just by clicking on the New File icon.

With default, out of the box, AutoCAD, clicking on ‘new’ will open a generic template directory that comes with AutoCAD, ideally, it would be useful if it either opened your company template directory, if you have several different templates or just open your company template. Here’s how to do it.

By the way, this is one of those guides that takes longer to read, than it takes to actually do what it describes, sorry!

Within this tutorial, I will give you a step by step guide to both the Quick New (QNew) and Main New methods, both of which are required to get you going with this process. The Quick New option will make sure this process is saved in your Quick Access toolbar, whilst it is important to know about the Main New option in order to save to your directory.
