Changing the units of a design w/o changing its size

Hi, I built a model in cm and later found out that the proper units were inches.  I know how to change the default to inches but that resizes the model.  Any ideas change just the units without scaling it?

    Just above your document editable space, to the right of the Onshape logo, click on the three horizontal bars. Midway down the menu that pops up is Workspace units. Clicking on that will bring up another menu to allow you to select measurement units you'd like. - Scotty
