Hi all,


 Is there a way to modify the DEFAULT SCALE LIST to show a metric scale list in an imperial template? I mean, I start a drawing using the imperiial template, but i wan to use the standard metric scales on paper spcae. on previous versions the scale list shown both imperial & metric. Now it depends of what the template is using.


 can you help me?


thanks in advance.

Use SCALELISTEDIT, select Reset. the Scale List - Reset dialog box should pop up select the list of scales you want loaded. You can choose Metric only, Imperial only, or both. Do a saveas of the OOTB template file with these changes made in it and set it as your default drawing template.
