UI: Line width in cm or in pt but not both
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Insert -> Shape -> Line -> Line
3. Draw a line
4. A context toolbar appears on top -> Line width in cm
5. Sidebar -> Properties -> Line width pull down -> PT
CM and PT are used
PT or CM -> PT in my opinion.. as table borders are defined the same way

Agreed. See also bug 72662 (comment 4) and bug 44267.
The toolbar follows the setting in Tools > Options > Writer > General, Sections Settings, field "Measurement unit".
The sidebar should follow this setting too.
So in general setting measurement units of UI does need some attention.

True, but discrete for each LO module. And the Sidebar content panels, toolbars and NB *should* follow that setting per module.
But would make sense if the measurement units settings for UI could also be reset globally from *one* location? Perhaps on the Tools -> Options -> General pane? With option to override per module...
As to unit choice, why Points? Equally valid to use Pixels, Twips, even mm--which would at least be at our 1/100mm native resolutions.

Related to Points, that's based on Writer table border size + font size etc; not intended as general setting.
