Standard notes and tables in drawings.

We have a number if standard notes and tables we sometimes use (but not always).  Is there any way to include these in the drawing template or save/copy them from somewhere so we don't have to continually re-create them?  I haven't found an easy solution yet.  Thanks for any help.

    @LKRENZLER I created a support ticket and will tie you to an improvement for a "block library" which will cover collections of drawing information that can be inserted and rely on our versioning mechanism for updates.

    For today, users place standard notes on their drawing templates and then remove them on newly spawned drawings from the templates  - if they don't need them on that particular drawing.  

    I would probably make sure to "Move to" those notes and tables onto the title block, as most are located next to title blocks on drawings and this will also ensure they move along with the title block on sheet size change operations.
