You could experiment with using Edit Area and Transform Replicate to fix the scale but likely best to stay with the Imperial template and change the dimensions and notes.

Not that I know of. There does not seem to be a global switch for this. You need to start with a metric template. However, If you create a blank metric and try to copy the imperial plan contents over it does not convert things properly. The only way things will transfer properly is if you save the imperial item to your library and then retrieve it and place it into your metric plan.

Thanks for the replies. I am needing to convert the actual plan and was hoping not to have to redraw it if possible

In an imperial plan you can change the format of all of your dimensions to metric and you can work and make entries in metric. Might be good enough.
