    Default How can I modify Drawing Template?

    I am using AutoCAD 2015 and have created a custom drawing template from the standard am_din.dwg template. It leaves me with lines at the bottom of the sheet which I would like to remove:


    These lines perform like they are borders of a table cell. AutoCAD will not let me Snip them. How can I delete them?

    Thanks

    What type of objects are these lines? Are you using a vertical on your AutoCAD 2015?
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Maybe you could upload a copy of your template so someone could look at it.

    Sorry. It's been a while since I came here and I'd forgotten how to do that.
    .DWG attached.

    looks like your problem is Inventor Objects carried into the dwg. Choices would appear to be to either Erase or Explode them

    Thanks, cadtag, but the problem is that I do not know what you mean by "... Erase or Explode ...".
    May I trouble you to explain? How can I modify this template so the lines I don't like are gone?

    Thanks

    Uhm... those are autocad commands, select the Inventor objects, and type ERASE at the command line

    That was interesting
    Trying to modify the block in Inventor closed Inventor and opened the file in AutoCAD (all by itself).
    To modify it I needed Block Editor - but it modified, saved, and I reopened it in Inventor with the changes.
    It worked - as far as removing the line goes. I haven't had time to check but I guess that will stop the table cell behaviour as well.

    Cheers.
    Thanks for the advice.
