First, I would welcome input and/or confirmation from DW on these issues. I'd bet that your DW is actually doing the same thing; that is: Importing DXF's at a 0.0833333 (1/12) scale factor and Exporting DXF's at a 12 scale factor. I wouldn't know how the MAC version accomplishes the task, however.
Well, I told you a could change the Import setting back. I already have. I just recieved a large DWG file. I created a DXF from it. Upon import either DWG or DXF into DW, the Import Scale Factor needed to be 0.0833333 (1/12). Some of us just learn the hard way... I am leaving the Export Scale Factor at 30.48 for now.
Gary, you just need to make sure that the Scale Factor you select in Artlantis is 2.54 when you open a DXF. That will do it!
