When drawing elements to be cut on a laser cutter, setting up a document in mm is very helpful. Unfortunately, the common interchange file format for this kind of device is SVG. While the file format supports measurements in defined units, Designer converts to pixels during the export, which means that after import, the dimensions have to be recalculated. Therefore, it would be great to have the option to preserve the units from the document during export, such that a 50x150mm rectangle is exported just as such.
I wanted to know how to set the displayed units in a working document? They are by defaut displayed in points, I want to have centimeters or millimeters, how can I do this? I can't manage to find where in the application this settings are located…
I mostly use centimeters, inches, and pixels as the unit of the document, but still measure the fonts in pts. It seems like now you need to use the same unit for fonts and measurements, which I find a little inconvenient. I think it would be a good idea to add a "font unit" parameter, since fonts and lengths aren't usually measured the same way. Thanks!
