SOLIDWORKS Composer 2021 – Sharing (Default) Document Properties

Article by John Lee, CSWE updated November 3, 2020

Loading and Saving Document Properties

Once you have selected the desired settings, go to File > Properties > Default Document Properties > Save… to create a Profile file (the file extension is .docPropSet).  Once that’s done, you can load those settings into another computer’s Composer installation and assign them to the Default Document Properties, by using the Load button found right next to the Save button mentioned previously.  And just like that, a company standard has been applied.
