Most of the time when I'm drawing, my cap lock are on. When I type in units in uppercase Inventor doesn't recognize that MM is mm, or IN is in. I want Inventor to apply the units - proper case or not.
Yes please...SUCH A PAIN!!!
I Agree, Maybe it´s pain but... DON'T MESS WITH UNITS ... PLEAAASE...
I agree that this is a common complaint (which is clear by the 76 kudos on this idea). However the real problem is the use of Caps Lock.
To begin, this request is not possible. The unit prefixes are case sensitive.
m = milli
M = mega
SIDE THOUGHT: "MB" is commonly understood to be megabytes. When people type "mb", they are really saying millibits.
The better idea would be an Application that auto-capitalize all text typed into iProperties and drawing text. AutoCAD Electrical already has this feature. We would want this feature to have NO effect on model parameters. See my comment and give kudos for this idea.
jhunt107, we are only talking the units "mm" and "in"
