    Default Field / additional format / conversion factor

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I have a problem when I copy a text with a surface field associated to a polyline. I have a drawing in cm but I need the surfaces to be in m², hence I use a conversion factor. I created the field and associated with the polyline. If I copy the field and associate it with a new polyline, I lose the settings of the conversion factor, so that everytime I copy it I have to reset the conversion factor.
    Is there anyway to keep those settings?

    Thank you

    Isn't this the same question you previously posted?
