template unit

hi everyone.

 I specify a template when I open a new auotocad file and drawi  some shapes in autocad with c#.

the problem is the coordinates that I use to draw shapes does not match the template file and therefore the shapes are misplaced.(I am using centimeters for my code).

how can I change the coordinate of the template file to match my code coordinate?

thanks in advance.

You have to create and use a new template.  The easiest way IMO is to open a drawing that is correct, delete all of the objects and purge (keep the existing layers and styles if you want) and SAVEAS with a DWT extension.


Templates are DWG files with a DWT extension.
