Hello all, 

Thanks in advance for the help.  I am trying to export a file as a svg.  After that I would like to convert it into a .dxf to send out for cnc laser cutting.  The shapes are very simple.  The document is in mm.    

If I export the file as a svg and then open a new document to place the file, the size does not seem to retain the proper scale. The imported file has dimensions ~4.5 times larger than the original. Please help if you can, what can I do to export the file and retain the proper dimensionality?

Many thanks,

I think you have to uncheck the Set Viewbox in exports more settings.
