Why you need Named Page Setups in your drawing template

Named Page Setups are a way to preconfigure your plot settings, matching this sheet size with that plot device to produce consistent repeatable output.

 You can preconfigure a layout for a specific paper size and plot device in Page Setup Manager.  Named Page Setups are a way to store and recall all your plot settings for a particular plot device making it easier to reuse the settings on another layout or import them to another drawing.
