Scene properties are extensive; style, camera position, projection, and lots more, certainly worth exploring. There are already some good suggestions above. One example is I have a quick template that has a few scenes, a “working” scene with the style showing me a bright color backside, and the lines and background in my preferred colors for modeling as well as the camera set to perspective and a FOV that I favor. But that same template also has scenes for the standard ortho views top front back left and right, all with the camera set to parallel projection and style for those scenes is set to an untextured line drawing. So it’s easy to work on my model and quickly jump into a scene that gives me more of a con doc way if viewing things. Couple those preset scenes with a layout template which includes the same scenes already tied to preset viewports and it can really start to save some time.
My templates also have a ton of components I regularly use. I placed them once then deleted before saving as a template (don’t purge model as this will erase them). Then a new opening document is blank but the component window “in model” is populated with things I often need which are a snap to place.
