Hi all,

I have converted a pdf to a dxf. I have a piece of software that does this. When I bring in dxf that's been converted into viacad, and check a dimension, I get what it would be in imperial but in mm.
I've just done a test exported out from viacad and back in, and it's fine. Jusr wondering if anyone else has this issue?

I've changed to imperial on import, and then get the right figures.

Early DXF versions do not have a unit stored in the file. Some third parties also do not put a unit format in the file. If that is the case, you will need to import and specify the unit format of the file in the dialog box.
