Units different between template and tape measure


I’m using the Arch Ft/In template, but when I use the tape measure it displays units in meters. Any suggestions?


A template simply sets initial values for a new model. These settings can be changed at any time during a session and saved with the model.

Does this happen for all models or just one in particular?

Have you investigated Model Info > Units (and possibly made changes there)? If not, I suggest you do so now and make any needed changes. Also, start a new model and take a look at the units settings. If you need to make changes, do so and resave the template.

Read these Knowledge Base articles:

What are templates and how do I change the default template?



good stuff! I’ll check it out. It actually happened to a student of mine last nite.
