Question: How do I change the plant catalog units from Imperial to Metric? 10 - 20 years later.... Answer: You Cant. Question: Why...? Answer: eeeeerrr.... (no real reason at all that makes any sense.) And so the beat goes on. I work in VFX for Film and TV and there are far more complicated pieces of software out there where the very notion of a simple unit change for such a fundamental part of a work process not being a simple flick of a switch would be laughed at. Not good enough Vectorworks!
Can a column in a worksheet be re-formated to display another dimension standard? USE: My file is in imperial (ft/in) I'm working on a worksheet for some LED video walls. I am pulling the module width and height fields. I'd like the worksheet to read 500mm, not 1'7 11/16" (The short answer is to finally get America on the metric system so this isn't an issue...)
I see that some plugin Objects like Stairs have 2 Sets of Libraries, a Metric and a Imperial Version. As I will avoid to see anything Imperial in my VW, are these meant to be selected automatically, depending on my File Unit Setting, or do I have to delete all Imperial Duplicates to reach my target ?
