Applied Parameters: None
This command is used to toggle between the use of Imperial and Metric measurement units, for the active Draftsman document (*.PCBDwf).
This command can be accessed from the PcbDrawing Editor by:
- Choosing the View » Toggle Units command, from the main menus.
- Using the Q keyboard shortcut.
After launching the command, the units of measurement in force for the active Draftsman document will be toggled. If they were previously Imperial units (mil), they will toggle to Metric (mm), and vice-versa.
- This command effectively toggles the setting for the Units field, in the Units section of the Properties panel.
- You can quickly verify the active units from the Status Bar, by looking at the entry for the coordinates, at the left-hand end of the bar.
