New users using measures


#1

Why can’t I use the inches measure?


#2

You can. Either select an appropriate template or change the units in Window>Model Info>Units.


#3

Thanks! can you tell me which one is the best for interior designs? Architecture?


#4

the inches space is not available


#5

You can certainly use an Architectural template if you’d like. Or you could make your own.


#6

Inches are the only possible units in the Fractional format so you can’t change the units from inches to something else.


#7

If I select architectural is the same


#8

The Architectural format is feet and inches. There’s no other choice for that format so no reason to select anything for Units.


#9

And I need to use both, feet and inches. Well it doesn’t let me, working on the template, use inches and feet for making a triangle or anything


#10

What do you mean? When you draw something, what units are you seeing in the Measurements window? When I select the Architectural format for dimensions, I see feet and inches.


#11

The Architectural setting will allow you to draw in Feet and Inches (just specify the unit you want to use when defining measurements.


#12

I mean, when I want to draw a rectangle say 6’6’’ to 24’3’’ it only accepts the feet. I changes the precision to 0’’ to see if it works.


#13

How are you typing the dimensions? Exactly what do you type?


#14

16’6’’, 24’3’’


#15

Where are you? Are you using an English keyboard setup?

What exactly do you see when you drag out a rectangle without trying to type the dimensions. Is there a semi colon between the dimensions?


#16

Well in between spaces which I didn´t use. I’m IN Mexico and my keyboard is in english


#17

Don’t use spaces either. There needs to be a comma or a semicolon between the dimensions.


#18

I’ve tried. The thing is that if I erase the inches it makes the rectangle in the feet dimensions without the inches


#19

Try it like I show in my GIF.


#20

awww without the inches things
