Issue with annotated dimensions

Recommended Posts

Working on a project file and I find that I am constantly switching back and forth between Imperial and Metric dimension standards.  No worries with that, I do it all the time as we Americans cannot seem to wrap our heads around the far superior Metric system..... 


I have an annotated sheet layer where all the dimensions, which were absolutely created in an imperial standard, have changed to metric.   Changing my document preferences back and forth, re-loading the sheet layer and even re-loading the file did not help.  The only solution was to open the annotation and and manually reassert the dimensional standard in the OIP.  According to Service Select, this is not normal behavior as dimensions should always follow the standard with which they were created regardless of user preferences.  Checking with other users of the file, the dimensions were indeed imperial.   


Has anyone else seen this behavior?
