Hi I'm trying to import into flatcam drl (drill files) exported from diptrace and noticed that the scale is off by 10x. When searching for a solution I found this old bug (https://bitbucket.org/jpcgt/flatcam/issues/94/excellon-coordinate-parsing) There is mentions the format I see in my .drl file: --- M48 METRIC,0000.00 --- Still it doesn't parse it correctly. Is there any setting I'm missing to make it import with the correct scale? The only one i find is about the T/L for excellon zeros but that one I already set as L per this format. Cheers!

This is a known issue. It has something to do with the ambiguity of the excellon format. The work around is to scale your excellon by 10 or 0.1 (depending on which direction the issue is) I have to do something similar for eagle as well.
