Summary

New Property : Support Measurement and INSUNITS variable.

Solution

In version 6008 we added a new property in vdDocument object named InsUnits. This property is an extra property for units to specify the drawing's Units regarding "real world units". This property is used when a drawing is inserted in another drawing. If a drawing in millimeters is inserted in a drawing with meters the objects of the insertable drawing will be scaled in order to fit the new drawing.
