I am looking to open DraftSight with a blank screen, no drawing/template loaded. The same screen you get when you close all open drawings. Is this possible? Presently on DraftSight 2018.

There is an easy fix to this inquiry. Open the application, then type Smartnew and a new drawing will be created with the name NONAME_n.dwg.

To set this as default, follow the instructions:

  • Click Application menu > Preferences (or type Options).
  • In the Options dialog box, click System Options .
  • Expand Open / Save As > Template file name for SmartNew.
  • Click Browse to set a different template drawing.
