No matter what unit type I select it seems to never measure out to be what I selected or I'm doing something wrong. Can anyone help me with this? Last edited by Creepy1; Dec 28, 2012 at 12:57 PM.

Well that works for me, but what does the preview mean? For example if I want a 50 x 50 mm square do I type 50, 0.50, 5.0000? That preview has me uber confused.

Ok well I guess my confusion is with the grid spacing. Does they grid go by millimetres aswell? I make a square 10 x 10 mm yet the grid doesn't add up to 10 grid boxes by 10 grid boxes. Know what I mean? Is this my screwing things up?

I'm doing that but for some reason my 10 x 10 mm box made by typing 10.0 only adds up to 7 x 7 grid boxes.
