unit conversions

Hi, For an autocad assignment, we have been given a drawing in engineering notation (feet and inches) and have to draw it with SI units dimensions.

Doing the drawing was fine, BUT, I drew it in inches and thought that I could change it to millimetres.

I have used the units command initially to set up engineering. Then after drawing returned to units to change to decimal. Dimensions turned out in inches regardless.

I also tried the scale command to alter the scale, then dimension , still no luck.

I went into the annotation menu got to modify primary units and alternate units and still no luck.

Could someone please help. Not even my tutorial teacher knows how to do this.:?

Instead of decimal, which is still imperial, use millimeters.
