The Angle, Decimal, Distance, and Scales files are stored on a per-drawing basis. So, if you've customized any of these files, they must be loaded into the drawing before you can use them. If you've customized the values via the Edit Definitions menu, the changes you make will only affect the current drawing. You need to use the Save File option to update the corresponding file on the hard drive.
Only DCADWIN.ang, DCADWIN.dec, DCADWIN.dis, and DCADWIN.scl are currently transferred. Perhaps I need to change this to *.ang, *.dec, *.dis, and *.scl?
