File /document settings /units /show unit mark (tick/untick) 


This has come up before as they were appearing by default in SP1 VW2018. Our assistant is finding the mm appears at "random" on dimensions. In the first instance I am going for the human error interface functionality. So Jim my question is: is there a shortcut in the programme to disable/enable this function e.g Control X she may be accidentally pressing which is very like another operation? 


Many thanks



Hope this makes sense!

We have this issue on some of our files too, where a set of dimensions display the mm after it, while a new set added does not, 

in addition when 'picking' up classes from the one with mm added, it transfer to the one without it, but doing the other way around, the mm still remains.

a mystery.


is there a shortcut or some other way to turn them off?

as with them the text is too long to display properly... which would mean we need to change over 50 drawings with dimensions added to them to make them readable...

@David S Hi David,

that is possible, but the specific project in our practice that encounters this problem is still in 2017, and we can't transfer it to 2018 (it's a very large project, and the BIM execution plan is set up with other consultants and agreed to use 2017 vw version).

do you know of any fix for the 2017 version?


kind regards Anton
