Drawing preferences - setting the default

rappel
Is there any way to set the default current drawing preferences so that I don't have to set these each time?
Can't see anything obvious.

Specifically I'd like to be able to set the paper size and orientation, the drawing units and the text height of dimensions and a couple of other dimension characteristics.

It doesn't have to be through the GUI, I don't mind editing a config file somewhere if this has the same effect.

I'm on Win 7.

Many thanks

Open the file C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreCAD\resources\library\templates\empty.dxf
Set your preferred settings in Current Drawing Preferences and save the file.
Then, next time you open a new file, the settings are there.

empty.dxf is the default template, loaded when you start up LibreCAD.
Also, when you create a frame inside empty.dxf, you will always start with that.
You can have more templates e.g. for different paper size or orientation and use New From Template to open them.
