You can use a special kind of Canvas X Draw document, called a template, as the basis for new documents. Canvas X Draw includes many ready-made templates, and you can create your own template documents. Then, when you use the New command, you can select a template — either one supplied with Canvas X Draw or one you have created — to create a new document based on the contents and configuration of the template.
A template document stores almost all preferences settings, as well as the settings you specify with the Document Setup command, and other document setup options, including the following:
Canvas X Draw stores some settings with the application and not in particular documents, so these settings are not included in a template document. The settings that aren’t stored in a template include the position of palettes on the screen and the current set of external tools.
If you create a template with a small amount of type, such as for a letterhead, convert the type to paths so the template can be used without particular fonts being available.
