Setting English or Metric Drawing Units

The Units setting determines whether Metric or English measurements are used.

You can change the unit of measurement setting at any time, not just when starting a new landscape design.

When typing a distance measurement, the default for English is feet, and meters for Metric. However, units can also be entered explicitly. For example, 3m can be used for 3 meters, 2’6” can be used for 2.5 feet, and 12cm can be used for 12 centimeters.

Realtime Landscaping Architect automatically converts the units entered. For example, if the measurement system is set to English and a distance of 1m is entered, the measurement will be converted to 3’3”.
