I would like to have the working units in Archicad be able to accept any unit of measure (inches, feet & inches, mm or m) at any time I need with out changing the Working Units settings. Sketchup allows this. As it is now, if inches is the Working Unit set, I do not even have the option to input a measure of feet & inches unless I manually change the Working Units setting. I am sure this would not be an issue with metric. But English units is not easy to convert in our heads. So it would be helpful to at least set the units to either metric of imperial and then when in imperial, the user can choose to enter 148" or 12'-4" on the fly. Why can Sketchup do this and Archicad can't? Can GS make Archicad do the conversions instead of the user? Or maybe GS could just convince the US government to change over metric. Which would be easier?
This should not create a problem with data exchange if set up properly. There should be a real-life unit that is not effected by user chosen units as can happen in Autocad, where the whole drawing could be re-scaled if the the wrong units are used.
