      Hello,

      I have recently downloaded draftsight to edit dwg drawings. Just as a trial i save a solidworks drawing as a DWG drawing. I can open it in draftsight but am having dificulty in figuring out the dimensions. When drawing in solidworks i used millimetres, but if i put a dimension on a line it assumes it is metres, and converts it to millimetre, eg if i have a line of known length 90mm, Draftsight takes it as being 90metres and hence displays it as 90000. I have used autocad in the past,and could use it to a reasonable extent. But havent used it now though in about 4 years so have forgot most of what i knew.

      So would any one have a solution to my problem, how can i get it put 90mm on instead of 90000.

      Regards

      Mike
