V7 unable to work with its own dims settings

Hi Jeremy -

I will agree with you that Rhino 5 does things very differently from Rhino 6 and later.

@Steve1 - If you have projects in Rhino 5 that only need minor adjustments, I would recommend to use Rhino 5 for those changes. Anything to do with annotations and text was completely overhauled when Rhino 6 came along. In Rhino 5, for example, text blocks did not have a style at all.

As for this one…

… that’s set in Document Properties > Annotation Styles > [your style] > Length units:
