Changing a drawing format doesn't change the sheet format/title block.

I have several drawing formats I regularly use.  When a drawing sheet is created and I change the drawing format (Right click Sheet > Properties > Browse and select new .dwt format), the title block and layout of the previous sheet remains and it does not import the new sheet format.

The only workaround I've found is to create a sheet, box-select the entire sheet's border and title block, delete everything and import the layout from the .dwt file I need via the "Insert DXF or DWG" option.  I'm convinced there's something I'm not understanding here about drawing formats.

How would I set it so Onshape will update the format of the sheet when it's changed, on a sheet that's already created?

    It sounds like maybe the geometry that you created to form the border and title block have not been assigned as border items. I'm not sure of exactly what the name is, but if you select the entities that are supposed to be the border/title block, you can right click and select "move to border" or something. If they are not assigned as border items then they don't get saved with the template upon exporting. It might be that the template your trying to switch to, doesn't actually have an border items saved in it.
