Hi Guys,

can I save my scaling settings for different templates. E.g. I always want to have the scaling times 10 for a template. For template 2, the scaling should always be 1x.
However, I currently have to manually change the scalings again and again, because they are changed beyond the template.

Can it be helped?

I'm not entirely clear on how you are defining "template," because you can save a template in Illustrator. I suspect you mean that you have content that you're using as a template in which you'd like to see one version of the content at 1x and another at 10x without manually resizing. You can do that by using symbols. Take your 1x version and convert it to a symbol (with the content selected, go to Window > Symbols then click the New Symbol button or press F8). Drag out an instance of your symbol and scale it to 10x. Whenever you have new content, edit the content in your symbol. Both instances will be updated.
