PADS Layout VX.1.1 Backward is every time in mils

Question asked by swb on Nov 30, 2015

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??
