Schedules - Perimeter

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi Everyone,

Currently trying to set up my schedules in v18 and the perimeter shows up in mm by the looks of it, is there a way of changing it to m? As it currently shows as 32,000.0 instead of 32.0.

Thanks in advance!

Have a look in the OPTIONS menu > Project preferences > Calculation Units and Rules.
Check what you have set for "Length Unit".

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the quick reply!

It was set to millimeters, now that I've changed it to meters it shows up as it should!

Just wondering with this change i noticed it doesn't affect the dimension units which is good, does it affect any other form of units that I may require in millimeters?

No only the calculations (schedules).
You have separate settings for dimensions and working units (All in the Options menu).
