          I have uninstalled and re-installed the third party software and checked and tried several scaling options including both mm and mils for my  DXF file  and it still does not work.  Each time I load my DXF file it changes my board shape and my DXF outline does not appear anywhere on the screen. Is there a solution to this issue?  I use Solid Edge to generate my DXF files.  I have even load the DXF file back into Solid Edge and it works just fine.  Is it poi

            Good to hear that this is resolved.  Some bonus info that may be of use to other users: if you're having problems with the board outline being changed (as I had yesterday), create a new empty PCB document and import the DXF into that, then copy/paste into your 'real' PCB.  Specifying the layers to import to would probably circumvent the board-outline issue but I haven't played around enough to know exactly what's what.
