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

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to remove the current schematic template used. A template is a graphical entity that holds user-defined sheet size, border and title block descriptions.

A template can be either a schematic document (*.SchDoc) or a schematic template document (*.SchDot). It can be file-based or can be a managed template Item in an Altium Vault.


This command can be accessed from the Schematic Editor by choosing the Design » Templates » Remove Current Template command from the main menus.


After launching the command, the Remove Template Graphics dialog will appear. Use this dialog to define from which documents the current template will be removed - either the current document only, all schematic documents in the current (active) project, or all open schematic documents - then click OK.

After the dialog closes, the template information in the lower right-hand corner of the sheet (the title block) will be removed. The border and sheet size remain unchanged.


  1. When removing the current template from all schematic documents in the current project, all documents that are currently closed will be opened as the removal is performed.
  2. When removing the current template from all open schematic documents, it is removed regardless of the project that a document belongs to.
  3. After using this command, the entry for the currently used template on the Template tab of the Document Options dialog will be blank. The template can also be removed from this tab simply by clicking the Clear Template button.
