When I configure the unit to inches, I still get readings in mils



FAB 3000 has two sets of units used.  PRIMARY and Aperture Units.

PRIMARY Units:
Are used everywhere within FAB 3000, except the Aperture Table.  You may change the Primary Units at anytime by selecting the Units Combo (located at the lower-right corner of the FAB 3000 screen), and choosing a different Unit value.

Note:  If you are import files, the primary units will adjust to whatever units were used in the imported files.


Aperture Units:
FAB 3000 imports a wide variety of design data such as : ODB++, Gerber, DXF, IGES, STL, HPGL, DRILL, and more.  Each format has it's own unique units and scale.  Typically when a CAM operator is working with an Aperture Table, they prefer to use a constant unit with which they are familiar with.  The two Aperture units or choice are MILS and MILLIMETER.

Is there a way to change this behaviour? I really do not use inches. Never ever. A use millimeters. Seriously. To make it really clear - I use millimeters ONLY. How can I make FAB remember this?
