Hi,

I'd like to know how to set it so that my preferred settings are in operation when I log into Draw.

I followed the help on how to set a default template, but its not working grr.

A Default Template is normally the answer but you say it doesn't work.

Did you first save the document and then go back and set it as your default? If so, tell us one of the default settings that you are trying to save so that others can try to do so and let you know if works for them.

Also let us know what your OS is and the version of OOo.

So how do I set it as default after I've saved it and then re-opened it?

From Help:
The default template contains the default formatting information for new text documents. If you want, you can create a new template and use it as the default template.
1.Create a document and the content and formatting styles that you want.
2.Choose File - Templates - Save.
3.In the New Template box, type a name for the new template.
4.In the Categories list, select "My Templates", and then click OK.
5.Choose File - Templates - Organize.
6.In the category list, double-click the "My Templates" folder.
7.Right-click the template that you created, and choose Set as Default Template.
8.Click Close.

Thank you. Please don't think I didn't search help and the forums before I asked.
