Map to MapGuide Coordinate Problem

A problem that has always been there is working with or trying to avoid coordinate systems. I will get two drawings that overlay perfectly using X-refs but one will be way out of scale in MapGuide.

MapGuide tried to deal with this by using Arbritrary X-Y coords. FM is generally not concerned with Coord. sys., and usually will have none assigned in Map/LDD if they have either. I can change to a state-plane setting in Map but what about the person using ADT?

Why are these so out of whack with each other?

Input greatly appreciated.

Just in case anybody cares, the solution is a simple one.

Make sure you assign units in the drawing:
Format > Units... > Drawing Units for DesignCenter Blocks.
