Gary,

I am sorry if I have taken this to far. NO, your assumption of needing to use both is incorrect. You ONLY need to set the Scale Factor to 2.54 (1 inch = 2.54) when Artlantis prompts you when opening a DXF file. That is the simple solution. Don't worry about changing anything in DW. That is probably the best solution for either MAC or Windows users.

Summary:

DXF files are in "inches"
DW files are in "feet"
Artlantis files need to end up in "cm"

Again, I am sorry for over complicating this issue.

Tired,

Jeff
