Autodesk Inventor 2013, has made a significant improvement in the user interface experience. That’s true when you read the tip below
Configuring Default Template in Inventor 2013 is even easy. In the earlier release of Autodesk Inventor, in case you wanted to have a default template, you would make the settings during the installation of the software and when you wanted to change these it would be really difficult. However, there were options for you to choose the metric tab or english tab and in turn select the appropriate template before you proceed with the modeling. Also when you wanted to change the units in the earlier release of Inventor you need to do the following
- Click Tools tab Options panel Document Settings to open the dialog box.
- Click the Units tab to open it.
- To change the setting for any of the measurement types or precision, click the arrow next to the edit box. Select the setting from the list.
- When you have finished the desired changes, click Apply to save them.
But with the release of Autodesk Inventor 2013, both the above problems are now solved., as you can set the default unit and template before you start any of the modules.
When you start Inventor 2013, a startup screen also popsup., as you see below
