How do you change the default units for new drawings. (ie "qnew")

My work colleague has inadvertently set up her Bricscad to default to Imperial units (inches etc).
When using the tabs or Ctrl+N the new blank drawing is always in inches.
How can she get the default new drawing to be in mm and not inches (without having to set a template each time)?

I tried to help, but I'm actually stumped.

    Cool. Thanks!

  • Please notice you can choose the template drawing in the Start tab: click the templates list button to see the list of available templates with respect to the selected workspace. Click More... to see the content of the Templates folder. Use the TEMPLATEFOLDER command to open the Templates folder.
