Working in Canadian Metric in ASD

I have just installed the ASD application, and all seems well. One problem, I live in Canada.

We use the metric system, and we build with CISC beams (i.e. W 150x22 instead of W 6x15). My issue is this: When I open a new project with the RBCS-044.dwt template, I can work in metric, but my beam libraries are all the European beams...not what I need. Then, when I use the RBCS-001.dwt template, I have access to the CISC libraries, but when I draw a line 3000 long, it draws it 3000 inches, not milimeters. regardless of how I seem to set my units.

I need to know how to open, or build, a metric template that gives me access to the CISC steel library, and draws and dimensions in milimeters.

If anyone knows how to do this, I sure could use the help.

Thanks in advance.
