    PADS Layout VX.1.1 Backward is every time in mils

    swb

      Hi,

       

      I have a PCB project. In the options of PCB Layout the unit is Metric.

      In the DXDesigner on the first page is the attribute UNIT=METRIC set.

      he attribute Geometry.Height is in mm on the xDX Designer side.

      Like 6.00mm for LED1 (== 236.22mil)

       

      If I want do backward from PCB by the xDX Designer Link I get every time this:

      *PADS-ECO-V10.0-MILS*

      *REMARK*  old file: L:\PCB\prj\2010\LPSFE2\DATA.asc

      *REMARK*  new file: L:\PCB\prj\2010\LPSFE2\ED000-LPSF03.asc

      *REMARK*  created by ECOGEN (Version 6.4v) on 30.11.2015 12:47:48

      *SET_ATTRIBUTE* PART LED1

      "Geometry.Height" 236.22mil

      *SET_ATTRIBUTE* PART LED2

      "Geometry.Height" 236.22mil

      *SET_ATTRIBUTE* PART TR3

      "Geometry.Height" 1574.80mil

      ...

      ..

      And this will fail because MIL != METRIC.

       

      Where is the hidden option to change the unit from mil to metric in backward??
