As an additional tip: You may want to look into the undocumented command -DWGUNITS (note the hyphen).

This command helps reassign/fix the units for drawings that are opened using AutoCAD [LT], but were originally created in a vertical application like Land Desktop or Architectural Desktop, etc.

If a drawing was created with a vertical app, its Units settings will override whatever the Units are set at in "vanilla" AutoCAD.

Reassigning the units with -DWGUNITS helps fix some known issues when inserting blocks or xrefs (ie. they become scaled up or down incorrectly) especially when using a Tool Palette.

Hope this helps!
