Drawings - Is it possible to Change an existing drawing from A4 size to A3 Size template?

When clicking sheet properties and changing to a new DWT file it does not seem to work.
 Is this possible?
IE Have a drawing using a custom A4 drawing template, further details get added to drawing at later stage and rather than add a new sheet increasing sheet size would be clearer communication. So clicking on sheet properties and locate a larger template DWT file in A3. When doing this it does not seem to bring the template in correctly.

    @ryan_mcgoldrick47 Yes, it's certainly possible to do this.  I would need to see how it does not bring in the A3 correctly, but might assume it's because elements are not properly assigned to title block, border, or zones.

    I will raise a support ticket on the document in question, we ended up re-creating the entire drawing the templates we were using were the ones you previously helped us build but maybe they need further adjustment?
