Hi,

V5

I wish to see my mm dims as inches such as 1.25 not 1 1/4, I go to properties, select annotations and millimetres large, (style I am using) select from choice of

decimal

Fractional

feet and inches

well I certainly dont want fractions so select feet and inches

but 12mm becomes 0 1/2" not 0.47"

also worryingly and no use whatsoever, my 70mm became 3" and not 2.755"

as such these dims are no use whatsoever.

Where does one get it to show inches decimal.

I did then try for property >units > inches > decimal and scale yes, and the dimensions smothered my item.

I am still unable to grasp changing from mm to inches. and importantly back to mm.

There is nothing on this in Levels 1 or 2 !

I have dims which are a mix of inch and mm, so I need to toggle between working with mm and working with inches.

Both in terms of the display and also the inputting of numbers.

what are the exact steps to get the drawing to go from showing mm to showing inches as decimal, and to have 70mm show as 2.755" ?

Also what are the exact steps to get the drawing to go from showing mm to showing inches as fractions, and to have 70mm show as 2 3/4" ?

Each time without making the item smaller in reality, ie it would still mill from mdf or foam the same size.

and also to not have the dimensions smother the item like leaves hiding a tree !
