How do I change the Behavior default settings in Block Definition?

When I click on the Make Block  icon a window opens. Under Behavior, the Scale Uniformly button is not clicked and under Settings the Block Unit is Undefined. So I have to pick the Scale Uniformly and then open the Block Unit menu to select Inches. I make many small blocks when creating mechanisms and sometimes forget to set the Behavior and Settings. I have one old template I made years ago that has these as defaults. None of my other templates have the correct defaults. How do I change these defaults?

Dear progeCAD Customer,

In case you want specific settings to be present in all the new drawings being opened,
you have to apply your modification to the specific DWT Format file that you recall at startup.

To locate it, open the Windows Start > All Programs > progeCAD 2014 Professional menu and select the progeCAD Center 2014 > Utility > User support folder option..
Here you find the Metrics and English dwt format files.
In case you select a specific Template drawing, you find the dwt file in the Template sub-folder.
To apply your modifications to these files, you have to save them, in the same location, with the DWT format.

We look forward to receiving your feedback. Please forward it to the support@progecad.com email address. Thank you.

Best regards
