Tapped hole conversion problem from MDT6

Hi.....I'm designing a new machine which has a few legacy parts from MDT6 (originally MDT5).....I've noticed a problem when converting MDT6 parts which have tapped holes....The part translates fine, but initially there is no standard specified in the hole dialog box.....To correct this you can simply select the standard you need - but it's a bit of a pain to select every tapped hole in every convered part.......A picture is worth a 1000 words, so see the file in the CF.....Unzip it, open it and create an idw........Then try to spot the thread lines on the 3 tapped holes........Cheers.....Sean
