Switching mm to inches in reports layouts

I use combit within a software by Hexagon called Cabinetvision. The original reports were created in CV11 which are set up for mm. Now we installed CV12 and all reports are in inches. You could understand the great mess I have with margins, spacing, etc…

I have been looking but have not found a setting to switch it back to mm.

Please does anyone have any ideas?


Use UnitFromScm() for every length. This way the report will automatically adapt between cm and inch.

Extending on @Marco_Muller1’s answer, usually this switch should be done automatically in the background as long as you’re not using formulas for positioning. If all else fails, your vendor should easily be able to switch the unit system on code level.
