Package Generator units

When I create a package and use metric units then go back to the package model in the timeline, all of the values are converted to imperial units. Many parts only show metric values in the datasheet and there is no good reason that I know of for the value units to change.

I realized that I needed to set the document units for the package to millimeters to solve this issue so nevermind!

Hi @tmostad,


I hope you're doing well. Maybe I'm missing something but you can go into preferences and set the units to be metric and then the design will keep metric units by default. The Package generator always uses metric units by default so at that point everything would be metric.


If I've misunderstood what's going on please let me know.
