    Default Convert Imperial Template To Metric

    I've spent a good amount of time tweaking my imperial template file. Is there a way to update/convert a copy of this file to metric?

    Default Re: Convert Imperial Template To Metric

    units and DDUNits need to be changed.
    Measurement should be 1 and all linetypes should be reloaded. (this uses ACADISO.lin and ACADISO.pat files instead). I think hatches will not update unless you create a new one and matchprop to old one.
    All your blocks etc will still be set as they are in the block. UNITS and units tab will show a tick box for Scale objects inserted from other drawings which I think relies on the correct units set in a library block to adjust from imperial to metric correctly.
