Description Javier 2020-01-04 21:37:58 UTC
The 'element properties' shown at the right of the screen has a section 'Position and size' where this data is shown. If the application properties are set to use 'millimeter' as default measurement, then the position is shown correctly but the size doesn't: the size is shown in inches values despite after the numeric value the 'mm' literal is shown. Example: if the object has a size of 254x127mm then the size shown is '10,00 mm' and '5,00 mm'.

If the properties dialog is opened, then the size is shown correctly in the dialog, and if the values are changed then the UI is refreshed accordingly. But if another object is then selected, then the UI reverts back to showing the values in the wrong way again

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set the application preferences to use millimeters as the default metric
2. Create a new drawing and create an object of any size

Actual Results:
The size shown in the UI is expressed in inches (despite the 'mm' literal is shown after the numeric value)

Expected Results:
The size shown in the UI should be expresed in millimeters

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes
