 Problem saving customized drawing templates

I somebody can help me. I am having problems saving my customized 2D drawing sheet templates. After I customize the Title Block etc and try to save the template I get an error. See Screenshot.

Why am I getting this error or what am I doing wrong ? When I customize the template I try to save it with a new file name and follow the exact steps as in the tutorial video from this website.

Details of my installed version.

Try Save All, close everything, and reboot.
Seems basic, but you should be able to save no problem.
Do some house cleaning, disk defrag etc.
Make sure you post if it is solved.

Hi Paul,

Just some feedback.

Thanks for the reply. I have tried all the save options, including rebooting already. I re-installed my software as well. No go.

Hi Martin, have you tried that?

"Save as" your customized template with the name you want (no Templates_MM.z3) on desktop or in documents folder. Then go to "resource" folder and paste your template file, the system ask admin permission, click continue and the file will be paste. Open ZW3D go to Utilities - Configuration - Files, in Objet template file browse and choose your templare file in resource folder, then choose Default Part, Sheet, CAM template. Close ZW3D ed reopen. It works for me.
Regards.

Thanks domeni I will give it a try. I am on the point of installing 2014 version first, so I will see if that makes a difference first. Will let you guys know if it works.

Martin.
