Parent page: Schematic Commands

The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to manually reuse a server-based Schematic Template.


This command is accessed from the Schematic Editor by choosing Design » Templates » Set Template from server from the main menus.


After launching the command, the Choose Template dialog will appear from where you can browse to and select the required Schematic Template Item in the desired server. After clicking OK, the chosen template will be applied to the active schematic document. Verification that the schematic sheet is indeed using the correct server template can be seen in the Page Options section of the Properties panel when no objects are currently selected in the design workspace.


  1. The ability to freely (and manually) browse a target server and choose a server-based (managed) Schematic Template Item to be used/applied for your schematic document depends on whether the the user's working environment is being enforced through centralized environment configuration management - delivered through the Team Configuration Center. If available, the Center determines the environment configuration(s) that can validly be used and changes the relevant areas of the Altium NEXUS environment to enforce the permitted data elements of the chosen configuration. The ability to manually reuse server-based templates then depends on the chosen environment configuration:
    1. If the chosen environment configuration has one or more defined Schematic Template Items, then only those defined templates can be used. In other words, manual reuse of a server-based Schematic Template is not possible/permitted and this Set Template from server command will not be available. Instead the Design menu will provide a sub-menu of valid Configuration Templates that can be used.
    2. If the chosen environment configuration does not have any Schematic Template Items specified/added, or if you are working as an administrator, these will remain manually definable by the user. In other words, you are free to manually reuse a server-based Schematic Template using this Set Template from server command.
  2. When not using centralized environment configuration and at least one revision of a Schematic Template Item exists in the server, then you will only be able to use those Schematic Template Item revisions (latest) available to you. No local files may be used.
