    Question inserting DXF into drawing

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    my problem is that elements in dxf file inserts on wrong coordinates.
    for example if the coordinate is 123456.78 inserted element is on 12345678.00
    I tried to change comma-dot in regional settings, but no change
    scale is ok, but elements are on wrong coordinates...
    The same thing is on fresh instal acad 2008 and 2013, but on my old computer with acad 2008 it's working. Dxf files are OK...

    any ideas?
    thanks

    Check mm v's metres if your metric in the Units also when you use Insert Browse look at bottom right it has a scale factor make sure its 1.0
