Description Frank Brütting 2017-10-24 22:20:10 UTC
All the layout settings are metric (page, borders, linespaces, etc), but the spacing of inserted images is imperial. Would you please change that to metric default distances? Would be consistent and more convenient, too.

Comment 1 Dieter 2017-10-28 08:38:22 UTC
I agree. If you compare

image dialog => Wrap => Spacing is metric

Properties in the sidebar => spacing is imperial

Hi Caolán,
I thought you could be interested in this issue as the measure unit are hardcoded in https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/svx/inc/spacing.hrc#23
According to bug 105081 the same commit is causing problems with translations...
