Schedule's Units

Its the end of day and I'm trying to go home but for the life of me I can not see what is going wrong with my Schedules units.

I have a number of schedules that are displaying all sizes in millimeters.

But in the same file I have a Schedule that insists on displaying the sizes in meters and no matter what I try I can not make it display sizes in millieters.

Obviously I am missing something but what?

Oplen Options/Project Preferences/working units to set your 'model Unit and it's fractions. Then your schedule will reflect this.

Yep I've done that. It is weird because in another team share file it works in millimetres and in the team share file I am having the problem with the other schedules have the same settings and they work.

I have also tried deleting it and recreating the schedule but it still glitches. I'm going to have to resort to using pmk files from the good file to link to in the layout sheets in the bad file a pain but the only way I can see to get the job issued

There are known inconsistencies in the way schedule values are reported and there doesn't seem to be an easy fix as it would appear to go to the core of AC. For instance in the AC19 UKI template, if you open Schedules/Elements/04 Window List you will see window sizes in mm's but the wall thickness is reported in metres It shouldn't be like that, the values should reflect the chosen dimension settings irrespective of stored data value. It could be worked around if the schedules had the ability to process calculations e.g. you could apply a multiplier to a value like a spreadsheet... maybe AC25
