< ="text/" ="" ="/B1D671CF-E532-4481-99AA-19F420D90332etdefender/huidhui.js?0=0&0=0&0=0">I've been having an issue with my Enroute, and it seems to not actually store the settings for a drilling template.

I'll set the depth, feed speeds, etc, save the cut template. if i close Enroute and re-open and go to reuse the template... and it's empty- no speeds, no depth, nothing.

If i check the cuttemplates.ini file, there is information in the drill, but nothing shows up in the program.  

Anyone have any ideas?

Did it use to work for you?
Learn to automate Enroute by seeing an example at https://github.com/PlastecProfiles/EnrouteAddin

You might try running Enroute as an Administrator. Sometimes Enroute may not have the ability to save the Cut template file properly.

@paloato - this is running as an admin account, I can add/edit anything else...other than a drill.

Try to apply it to a Drill centre- and data gets blanked out. any other suggestions?

Dragoonxx,
 I know that suggesting to run the program as administrator may seem odd but did you try it? If not I would try it regardless of your Admin account. Sometimes Enroute will get into a problem where it does not think it has rights to save files properly when it really does. 
Also have you tried simply deleting this configuration file and starting from scratch? Sometimes these files can get corrupted and having Enroute create new ones can help. 

Best regards,
Aaron

Deleted the cuttemplates.ini file, and recreated just that tool to try again- same situation- doesn't validate the settings as a drill
