      Hi all.
      I have a question on templates.
      I have solidworks 2010 premium installed on my pc. I have been playing around and made a part, and drawing template. How can I delete them? I have tried tools>options>file locations , but cant seem to find where they are?
      Also could anyone help in the way of creating extra tabs in the "new" folder.
      I would like to have a seperate tab for metric part,drawing etc, and a seperate tab for imperial.
      Any help would be greatley appreciated.
      Thanks in avance

      Hi juice01,

      Try Tools>options> This brings up the "System Options"
      The location of the templates are under "Default templates"

      In "System Options" click on "File Locations". Then using the drop-down menu select "Document Templates". Just add the folders that contain your additional templates. Each folder you add will create an addtional tab on the menu that pops up when you want to create a new SolidWorks document.

      I hope this helps. It's a bit fiddly and not at all intuitive, I'm afraid.

      Thanks for the help Garethw :D
      I have located the templates now, but how do I delete the templates that I entered. I made two part templates that I would like to remove. Whenever I click on the small square icon next to them the widow to choose the template comes up, and there is no way of deleting them that I can find.

      Glad to be of help! Can you delete the template files via Windows Explorer? Or have I got the wrong end of the stick?
