Could you tell us wich file do we have to modify to work with meter as master unit:
- the working file
- seed files
-and what else ? ( datasets ? other dgnlibs ? Cell library, .... ?)
The product Datasets are available and can be downloaded with either Imperial or Metric units.
As for any files on which you may be currently working, the Working Units can be changed under the Settings pull-down menu by selecting Design File. Please keep in mind, this action will scale all existing elements which are already in your drawing.
See the attached .jpg files.
I can see that a list of recommendations about which dgnlibs and seed files need considering would be useful, leave that with me for the moment. The information exists but in a number of locations, a concise summary with links could be appropriate, I need to check what we have available already.
This LEARN Server link: http://learn.bentley.com/app/Public/ViewLearningPathWithMasterCourseExpanded?lpId=110463&mcId=100731 should take you to the page that includes: Advanced Workflows for BIM Managers of AECOsim Building Designer Learning Path > Customizing Dynamic Views to Optimize Drawing Production, this covers
Creating a project standard text style. Creating a project standard DataGroup Annotation tag. Creating a project standard display style. Creating a project standard drawing title. Creating an intelligent title block border file and sheet seed. Creating a project standard Drawing Seed using the project standards.
The techniques can be slightly adapted to use the Company folders rather than project folders.
4 years later I have the same problem with Connect.
I can't figure how to set up properly a DataSet/Workspace/Workset to work in meters:millimiters.
I still have lot of issues with scales: Grids, Floors, Annotations,cells,....
