I draw a lot of blueprints for work. I know how to make a custom fill pattern but my question is how do I make that fill pattern available to all of my drawings. For instance, I made a fill pattern for concrete while I was in one drawing. I opened up a new drawing and now I want to use the concrete pattern but it is not there.

But that pattern availible only in single document ! You can add that pattern in stencil, if you open stencil in common with other documents. That pattern will availible there too

Nope that is what helped me figured out how to create a custom pattern but it does not show me what I need to do t make it accessible to other new drawings.

I advice to you add your custom fill pattern to stencil. Just open this stencil with some documents https://youtu.be/feLCPsu4ITU

That I have already done. I have done it before and added shingles to a fill pattern and I can use this pattern on any of my drawings, but I can not remember for the life of me how I did it.
