Pretty much what it says on the tin. 

I'm trying to create project templates. What I've noticed is that anything referencing an enterprise gdb will preserve the reference, while anything in a file gdb will copy the data. For reference, thee gdbs are on a shared network drive.

Is there a way to have the templates preserve all references, rather than duplicating data outside of file gdbs?
