Answer

Starting with Advance Steel 2010 prototypes can store information about their drawing format, allowing a detailing process to fill the correct information about the format in the detail name, and also allowing the detail name to get updated when we change the prototype of an already created drawing. While the new prototypes have this option configured by default, if we need to use old prototypes we need to manually configure them as follows:

- Open the prototype with Advance Steel 2010/2011.
- Use the command: Define drawing layout on the AS Documents ribbon.
