However I am from the continent, I post my message here because most of you work with metric(?)

I try to get centimeters as default for Alpha Five.

In the view/settings/layouts I choose "always metric units".
However in the form properties the tabs "Pages" and "Form"
there appear no cm's but inches.
As I suppose 1 inch is about max 1,5 cm? I get confused about it.
I have done some searches on the books "User Guide",
"Release notes" and "Tutorial" But no clear instructions.

I must have forgotten something, but what?
Any help will be appriciated.

Hi Ton,

You would be better advised to post this onto the main message board - I am sure you will get an answer very quickly. By the way there are 2.54 cms in 1 inch.

Thanks Gil,
As I supposed that cm is more common in the UK the US I posted my question here.
But I'll also post it there.

I am using Alpha5 V4.5 with no problem. If you change the settings then you must exit and re-enter Alpha for the settings to activate.

America uses imperial measurements.
