You can also use AutoCAD's 'Design Center' tool to copy items (layers, blocks, layouts, etc) from your old template to the new one (you must have that drawing open). For example, to copy a layout over, while in the NEW template; 1. Type ADCENTER at the command prompt, 2. Click the 'Open Drawings' tab, 3. Click on your old drawing from the list, 4. Go to 'Layouts' then right-click the Layout you want to copy and select 'Add Layout'

As pointed out by Tim D, in the end note regarding entering the pressure limit, it isn't made clear where to enter this information. You'll find the 'Outlet Pressure Limit' box in upper middle section of the Edit/Create Pump Curve window. So when you're entering your pump information, you can set the max pressure value at the same time.

Art, is it possible to post this block somewhere with the obstruction already setup?
In more recent releases of the HydraCAD updates, you can skip steps 5 & 6 above as the update will automatically create a backup folder where you will find the HCADWIN.CUIX and your newly saved workspace (Step 12). You'll be able to find it in the; for AutoCAD 2013 & 2014 "C:\HES\HydraCAD\Ver50\Programs\50.3\Backup" or for AutoCAD 2015 "C:\HES\HydraCAD\Ver50\Programs\Version53\Backup"
Similar to the the 'Do Things by Block' or 'Do Things by Layer' commands... I keep forgetting to use this command because of CBL or EBB et al.

I've been using this for years and it's awesome. There's a highlight tool which is great and when an oval/rectangle tool is added, it will be perfect.

As an alternative, you can use the HydraCAD command 'Delete All on a Layer' to get the same end result. Go to 'HydraTools|Layer Control|Delete All on a Layer' then follow the prompts. Or, type in DL at the command prompt.
Update: This also works for Outlook 2007, use the same menu.

Thanks Art, I had a found a registry hack to get by this, but it was only per file extension, so at least this covers everything. One thing regarding step 6. If "Index files with unknown extensions" is disabled, uncheck the box below it which says "Inherit above settings from Service".
I wasn't aware of this and will definitely try it. One other thing I've found is that to REMOVE an object from your selection set (after making your selection window), press the SHIFT key and select the object(s) you'd like to remove.
I've always used CTRL+T to open another tab in the existing browser window, but I can try to get used to using the middle button.
