Title: Cannot reinstate metric units in Line & Arc Toolbar Tabs.
Post by: GeoffW on January 13, 2019, 08:39:46 PM
Have been working on drawing for many days with ALL units in METRIC.   Suddenly on opening file to amend some more, LINE and ARC Toolbar Tabs now show IMPERIAL!!!!
How can I simply revert to METRIC.    Inspector Bar and Ruler still show Metric Units.

Hi Tim,
Many thanks for your help.   I had checked my Space Units settings several times but this time I found that "Line Width Units" was showing "in"!!!!
Obviously I should take more time in scanning screens............"in" and "mm" looked the same to me so many times!
How often do seemingly impossible problems have simple solutions!!   You have been a great help to an old man!!!

Just remember that, if you accidentally start in one measurement system, you can convert to the other (be sure to click the Convert units radio button at the bottom or you will have scaling errors).

Only too pleased to help.

It's sometimes difficult to see the wood, for the trees (from one old man to another).  ;)
