Fixing dimensions entered as meters (by Steve)
Hi All,

This is my first SolveSpace drawing, and I've realised I've been typing in my measurements in m rather than mm -- this bin (for example) should be 1.2m across, but I've specified mm and typed 1.2.

Is there an easy way to fix this? I literally want to multiply every constraint by 1,000.

Yours,
Steve

If you go into configuration, you can change the scale factor for export. There is also a paste transformed operation, which would speed up re-scaling the drawings.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I was able to Ctrl-A (select all), Ctrl-X (cut), Edit > Paste Transformed, change the scale to 1000 (in the Property Browser), then paste. Proportions look identical -- so that fixed it. Thanks again.

Alas, I can't find a configuration option on the menus. I'm using v2.3~7c1ca460 on Windows. Maybe that's a bug; dunno.

Happy Christmas, all.

The configuration settings are accessed through the properties window.. When at the top level, list of groups visible, there are the links for line styles, views and configuration in a line at the bottom of the list.
