When you create new a drawing based on a drawing template in Civil 3D 2016 or earlier, the new drawing gets a copy of the styles in the template, but it is a one-time copy. The connection is not maintained. In the past, if you updated the styles in your template, and you wanted your drawings to get those same updates, you needed to manually copy or import those changed styles into your drawings.
With Civil 3D 2017 and reference templates, Civil 3D styles that are in that reference template are copied into the drawing, and the connection between the drawing and the reference templates is maintained.
We’ll dive into the process and see what happens in various situations as well as uncover various system variables that drive certain results in this process.
