    import DXF file into Expedition

    i have a .dwg drawing which i intend to use in my layout job so i had to save it as a DXF file in AutoCAD 2007. i had to Import that DXF file into my layout job in Expedition, and i did successfully.

    the only problem is that the imported DXF file seems to be way too small from its dimensions in the original DWG and DXF file in AutoCAD. the imported DXF drawing is even smaller than my smallest drill size.

    any advice on how to do it right so i could have the correct drawing dimensions for my imported DXF file? is there a setting for AutoCAD and Expedition for this?

    Make sure the units of your DXF are the same as the units in Expedition.

    same thing happened on the PADs layout.
    I never get a chance to use the Expedition, how good is it?
