A template drawing can contain layers, text styles, and dimension styles. Templates are pre-designed files that serve as a starting point for creating new drawings. By including layers, text styles, and dimension styles in a template drawing, it ensures consistency and efficiency in the creation of new drawings. Layers allow for organizing and managing different elements of the drawing, text styles define the appearance of text, and dimension styles control the formatting and appearance of dimensions. Including all of these elements in a template drawing saves time and promotes uniformity in design.
