You can define dimensions, area, and other measurements using metric or imperial units.
You can enter a value using either unit of measure. The UOM library converts the value to the UOM defined in the software. The following graphic shows a metric value (15 mm) that is converted to imperial units (.059").
A Field Settings tooltip displays the Unit Type as shown below.
The application displays an error message if you type a value that is not valid (see the following graphic).
