Site Model Display Units

Recommended Posts

Where has the option to select the display units on the site model contour label gone?

It was a fantastic addition for a while, but I cant seem to find it anymore.

Is it buried in the settings somewhere?


The work around of changing the document units to Meters updating the model and Never updating again is clumsy.

Paul, for clarification. You are looking to move or delete the contour labels or are you looking to change from feet to meters or meters to millimeters, or the like?

Hi, My plans are generally in Millimeters.

But we always show contours in Meters in NZ.

So for years ive been changing the units to M then updating the site model, and changing back to MM

but you have to do this every time before you print if you update the site model.


There was a Contour Units drop down menu in the Object pallet for a little while.

Might have disappeared when I did an update??

Ahhh, yes at this time if you are working in MM you would have to then change to Meters for the correct units. I will add this as an enhancement!

YES please, That would be awesome.

it was there for a little while, I cant quite recall when. I think 2019 first release, but disappeared with a Service pack perhaps.
