Changing Units Globally

How do I change the units globally (I'm guessing in config.pro), instead of having to change them individually for every new part?

Units in Config.pro

I believe there is a PDF in "HELP" if you type "CONFIG.PRO OPTIONS", but alter the units and your templates like so: in config.pro: pro_unit_sys mmns template_designasm C:\mmns_asm_design.asm template_solidpart C:\mmns_part_solid.prt Where instead of "C:\" enter the path of your document template. I'd also suggest altering a few other parameters within the template if you are the only person using that part template: add in your name, standard descriptions, and most common material and density. Also put in a few lines saying origin of the document in case anyone tries to pass off your work as their own. -AS

Config.pro units

mmns = metric, I just saw you were in US, the metric unit change is one of the more common questions outside of the US, not sure if you wanted metric or some other form of Imperial Units. -AS
