Displaying dimension units

howard_moskovitzhoward_moskovitz Member Posts: 2
I’m new to onshape. Is there any way to get the dimension tool to display the unit type? It only show a number but if I’m mixing SAE and metric I don’t know which is which.

    No, only if you enable dual dimensions from the drawing properties panel (wrench icon on right of screen). You can set dual dimensions individually for each dimension too, using the popup icon next to the dimension. Please create an improvement request in the category on the right -->

    Are we talking in a PartStudio sketch or in a drawing?  If PS then I don't believe so but it'll show whatever the document is set to.  Doh, just saw you posted this in the drawings forum so that answers that question.

    I'll let someone who knows about drawings jump in.
