QNEW (Command)

Starts a new drawing from a specified drawing template file.


QNEW creates a new drawing from the drawing template file and folder path specified in the Options dialog box, Files tab, Template Settings, Default Template File Name for QNEW. If template file name is set to None or is not specified, entering QNEW or clicking New on a toolbar or menu displays the Select Template File dialog box (a standard file selection dialog box). If you click Start Drawing on the Start tab or click the + on a drawing tab, the new drawing is based on the most recently used drawing template file, or else an internal drawing template is used.

The behavior of the QNEW command is determined by the STARTUP and FILEDIA system variables.
