Set all dimensions to millimetres by default


Hi All,

I am wrestling with getting DesignSpark set  up. I am officially old, but I have never worked in inches, thou or mil. These measurements are a pain and not compatible with any other design work I do. I have been trying to set dimentions to mm, precision 2, wherever I can but I keep finding thou creeping out like cockroaches from under a fridge in a grubby AirB&B. The last straw was when I went into the Design Technology form, set the Rules to mm and most turned to zero, except for Min Annular Ring, which is now 5 mm.

Is there a global setting within DesignSpark that gets rid of all the inch related units, and all the integer millimetres, and replaces them with millimetres?

Thanks in advance,
