Create ANSI Inch Holes with FeatureWorks and Direct Editing

When you import a part and run FeatureWorks or Direct Editing, and set measurement units to ANSI inch, all holes are created in ANSI inch.

In previous releases, FeatureWorks automatically converted holes to metric units when you selected the Recognize holes as wizard holes option in the Advanced Controls page. Direct Editing also automatically created holes in metric units even if the template was set to ANSI inch.
