Hi,

In the 7 will be possible to use millimeters ?
To define a document page and use in the Talk code ?

I hope this feature ^^ or a instruction type to change the unit in the midle code (always good)
"unit(mm)"
"unit(cm)"
"unit(inch)"
"unit(px)"

Gerald.

You can already change the unit to centimeters for standard objects in the Document. The option is available in the Tools | User Options | Behavior | Miscellaneous section.

However, the PlanetPress Talk code generated by those objects (or any PlanetPRess Talk code you write yourself) always uses inches. There are no plans to modify that behavior in the near future.

PS: I know to the miscellaneous smile but i have always worked in mm, changed to inch is hard and the precision at 0.5mm (0.019685 inch) is very hard to do in any case.
