Selective Dual Dimensions


New member
Is it possible to include either dual dimensions or just metric dimensions on a drawing while still leaving the standard dimensions? Basically, I want one view to include metric dimensions while all the others have standard dimensions (in inches). It seems to be all or nothing as a config option.

Place all your inches measurements. Then make changes to your dtl file to show dual dimensioning. Now place all your dual dimensions.

I don't know if you can show some in english and the rest in metric. But you can show some with english and the rest as dual.
