If you have a suitable imperial template, all you will have to do is set up one or more metric dimension styles.
They may already be set up but you can tweak so they are more suitable for you. Then go through all of the views in the View Map and change them to use the desired metric dimension style.

Then change your Working Units and Calculation Units to imperial as you want them (fractional or decimal inches etc,).

Objects should be fine, except maybe the user interface display may not have wide enough fields for the proper display of fractional feet and inches, so you may have to scroll in some objects.

Not really a concern for me, but maybe also check your favorites. They might have now some weird numbers showing

Eric Bobrow's Master Template

This is also available in meters / mm ? Thought it was US imperial only. ?

I'm based in Ireland and use the "International" version of Eric's template which is completely metric.

I think most European countries have a localised version or use the INT version.

I mean, you're welcome to receive our office template, but it uses Dutch layer standards, the Dutch localised library and so on.

I assume the 'commercial' templates out there cater to the local standards with more than just the system of measurement?

We provide an ARCHICAD Template out of Australia, but have a few users using it for European and in the past even created a version with layers based on DIN.

I am using 23 FR version. Thats also a small detail - the french language as opposed to an English standard version template. There seems to be a few options if EN is the chosen language setting. However, if in FR - anyone any suggestions ?

Cant really adopt an INT or EN template when using FR & Swiss standards

thx

Ok i see your predicament - but you could use the INT version of ARCHICAD with a local template...

As a long time Template developer / provider I am clearly biased - but do you have any idea how much effort goes into creating a proper ARCHICAD template?

Even if you do not end up liking it, you will have a blueprint to learn a lot from.

Additionally, keep in mind how much you invested into your ARCHICAD license(s) - anything that makes that investment worthwhile, be it training and / or a template (btw. at a fraction of the license cost) is priceless and will pay for itself in no time...
