Default changing units

open the part file-then click on tools menu-click on Options. Next in the Systems Options General window click on the <Document Properties> tab. On the left side of this box click on <Units>-on the right side you shouls Units System. This is where you would change it from MMGS to IPS.

I got the template information from the SolidWorks user guid help screens for you.
To create a template:

Click New (Standard toolbar) or File, New.

In the dialog box, double-click the appropriate icon for the type of template that you want to create: Part, Assembly, or Drawing.

Click Options (Standard toolbar) or Tools, Options.

On the Document Properties tab, select options to customize your new document template, then click OK.

Only options on the Document Properties tab are saved in a document template.

Click File, Save As.

Select a template type for Save as type:

Part Templates (*.prtdot)

Assembly Templates (*.asmdot)

Drawing Templates (*.drwdot)

Type a name for File name. The extension is added automatically.

Browse to a folder, then click Save.
