Dimension Anomoly in Sketch Environment

I have just encountered this strange anomoly where displayed dimensions in the sketch environment are incorrect.  The dimensions shown in the 'inspect' window are correct and are the ones that were used to construct this simple sketch.  If the sketch is exported as a dxf file, it has the correct, original dimensions.

 

If I double click on one of the dimensions it highlights in blue as normal and the blue dimension displays the correct value, but reverts to the incorrect value when released.

It looks like the sizes were created in CM but the document is set to inches. Can you export the f3d and share here?

Although it looks like the dimensions are in CM and your document is set to inches it should not display the dimensions in CM from my quick test. Does this still happen if you close and restart Fusion?

This is my quick test with a document started in CM then changed to inches. If I edit the dimension it shows 0.635CM but shows 0.25" while not editing. Not sure how you've got to the state you're seeing.

Thank you Mark.  It is indeed a weird situation.  This was a single sketch within a single component that I had to re-visit to adjust.  I am always in inch dimension and I had no need of anything metric and nothing had been imported.  Seems to have doen it all by itself!  I had to move on with the work and so the sketch was replaced - thus nothing to pass on for examination.  I am reasonably familiar and practiced with F360 and I don't believe that I had taken any unusual steps - but thought it worth flagging up since somewhere in the code this result becomes possible.

Have a pleasant Easter!
