    When you open a new drawing select the "standardgb" template, that's in metric.

    If you want to draw a line of holes or a circle of holes you use the "pattern" command, either type it in at the bottom of the screen or on the right hand side there's a symbol of a cluster of 9 squares...

    Draw your square and then snap a circle to the mid point of one side and click on a corner to set the diameter, do the same the other end and then use the trim tool to get rid of unwanted lines....
