Before saving the template file TurboCAD must be running as administrator so right click on the TurboCAD icon and choose Run As Administrator. Then set up your template the way you want from your already existing drawing that has all your styles in it. Then click File/-Save As and change the file type to .tct. Save the file to this location -

If 64 bit
C:\Program Files\IMSIDesign\(TurboCAD Version)\Template

If 32 bit
C:\Program Files(x86)\IMSIDesign\TC(TurboCAD Version)\Template
After you do this to open the template and start drawing in it you can just go to File→ New→ New From Template and choose the Template by it’s name.

These locations are correct only if you accepted the default locations during installation.

For a time, I had them point towards a Folder in My Documents so that I could include my setups in backups of my Data folder.  An additional advantage of this is that you don't have to be in Administrator mode to save a new Template or Custom Workspace.
