Is there a way to be more precise when I convert a file using WinTopo to dxf?
When I bring a pattern in it's huge and, yes, it's easy to scale it down by eyeball and compare it to a basic sloper.
is there a way to be more precise?

I'm figuring this out.
I am getting near to purchasing this program and will use the macros and change them accordingly.
I'm not going to worry too much about scale now.
Thanks for looking at my post!

Dxf has no unit defined. This means that the drawing could be drawn in mm and PM uses cm.
One way to be sure that the scale is right is to draw a rectangle of for instance 10x10 cm or inches at your drawing.
When you have opened the drawing in PM you can scale/resize the whole drawing by using in the resize command the measure x or y. You measure then the width of the rectangle and change it then to 10. Everything is scaled then with the same scale.
You can do the same with measure y for the length of the rectangle.

Thank you. This makes sense.
