I need help please.  I just purchased the Enroute 6 program recently and am having issues importing my dxf file.  When I import it into Enroute the scale is way off.  This is all new to me and I don't know what to do.  Has anyone had this issue?  Thank you for your help.

TinaT,
 What is probably happening is that the file that you are importing is, for example, in MM but your Enroute design space is set to IN so when you import the file it assumes the file is in inches. 
The way to fix this is find out what kind of units the file was saved in Inches or MM. Then once you know that then set your Enroute design space to that set of units. Go to your setup menu and click on preferences and under the units tab make sure your length is set to MM or IN depending on the file and then import it. 
Then you can always go back after you have imported the file. 

Best regards,
Aaron

hmm. I posted about mm/inches i think. definitely advises after importing and "fit plate to design" to then go back and make sure the origin is 0,0 because even though it looks right on the screen it will cut wrong so make the origin 0,0 then re-center the artwork.
