Distance Tool - Viewport and Attribute Editor using different units


#1

Hi,

I changed the units for my file from cm to inches. When using the Distance Tool, I noticed that the viewport is showing the measurement in Inches ("#1" in attached pic), but the distanceDimensionShape node in the Attribute Editor is still showing the units in cm ("#2" in attached pic).

If anyone knows why this is happening or how to get the distanceDimensionShape node to show the measurement in the file units (so it matches the Distance Tool measurement display in the viewport), that’d be great and I’d appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the try, but that doesn’t address the issue I’m having. That shows how to change Grid settings so the grids match the units I’m using. My question is that … the distance tool does in fact show the measurement in the scene units (inches) in the viewport, but in the attribute editor it’s still showing the measurement in centimeters. Any other input would be appreciated. Thanks.

It’s not a deal breaker, but of course I’d like to understand, if I can, why the discrepancy and change settings where needed to get everything to show as expected.

So I got an answer on the Autodesk Maya forum. Looks like it’s a bug. In case it helps anyone else.

I have checked a different kind of text editing tools which provides the facility of editing text in a more accurate way. Now students can easily choose the edubirdie.org options where you can get assignment writing reviews online to get good grades. It is one of the best platforms for learning writing courses for students to complete writing work themself.
