When you say that you converted metric to imperial, did you go to File Properties - Units tab and change the readouts? Also, if that is the case, did you do this in the active file or in the template file? If you did this in the active file, the next new file you create will be based on your template again. Most likely 'mm'. If you want imperial (inch) units always, you need to set the system up for inch. There was a dialog that was displayed when you installed the software that had a combo box to specify the standard to use. It defaults to ISO, which is mm. You can uninstall and reinstall and select ANSI which sets everything up for inch. This may be the easiest way to get there. If all you want is to see is feet-inch in dimensions, then change the units for the dimension style. When you place a dimension, you can see the active style in the dimension command bar. Most likely it is ISO. Click on the 'View' tab at the top. Click on the Styles command in the Style command group. Change the 'Style type' combo box to dimension. Click on the style which is the active style. Click on Modify. Click on the Units tab. Change the Linear-Units from 'mm' to 'ft-in'. Click on OK. Your dimensions should read feet and inches. This changes the units in the active file. If you want this in all files, modify the style in the template file. Regards, Rick B.
