Hi Sergio,

Yes, you can set both the drawing units and the display units for the dimension tools using the "Units and Scale" dialog box in the Tools menu. Please note that the Drawing Unit determines what one unit of measure in the drawing is equal to (e.g. 1 unit = 1 foot), and the Display Unit determines how measurements will be displayed when you use one of the measurement tools. (For example, if you are working with a DWF with a Drawing Unit set to Feet, you can then change the Display Units to display a 10 foot line as 120 inches, or 3.048 meters, etc.) Please refer to the topic "Units of Measurement and Scale" in the DWF Composer online Help for more information about setting Units and Scale in DWF Composer.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Hi Sergio, You cannot get the display output you are requesting for the area dimension tool at this time (that is with the m2 units designation), but we are addressing this problem in a future version; it is definitely on our list of to-do's. Sorry for any inconvenience this is causing, and thanks for letting us know about the problem.

Not at this time Sergio - but it is high on the list. (In other words, I'm not at liberty to say or they'll take away my lumbar support.)
