Heyo, so I'm a freshman high schooler (please keep this in mind when responding), so I'm not a professional at Inventor or anything. My engineering coach (I go to a STEM school so we call teachers coaches) installed Autodesk Inventor 2014 onto my Windows 7 i7 laptop (8GB RAM?). Anyways, after Inventor started bugging me, I started searching around. I think that my Default Template is messed up. I guess that's where customization happens? Anyways, it started when I tried downloading and converting a DXF 3D sketch into an IPT through TrueViewer. Some error always happened mentioning a default template, so I decided to make the linear actuator piece myself. When I clicked "New," the image was all weird unlike the desktops that have Inventor in my engineering classroom. The link to the distortion is here: http://imgur.com/gusm9OW. What I think is a hyperlink doesn't seem to work. I can go around it pretty easily, but it's a bit annoying. The final straw was when I noticed my dimensions were weird after two hours of work. When I went to change them, it was on centimeters! I figured out how to go to Options -> FIle -> Configure Defaut Template (Thank you Autodesk Community!), but it said the default WAS in inches. I tried restarting the program, but the same thing happened. It's stuck in cm and I have to use a conversion. So anyways, does anyone have any clue on what's wrong with my Inventor/Default Template? I think maybe some important file was touched in my computer, but I don't know. Before I go to my engineering coach I wanted

here is a fresh set of Inventor 2014 stock templates, These should be copied to your: Libraries>Documents>Austodesk>Inventor 2014>Templates>English directory. The Standard.idw should be copied to your: Libraries>Documents>Austodesk>Inventor 2014>Templates directory
