Document units to mm., permanently.

Recommended Posts


When i open an imported document from, f.i. Illustrator, the documents units are always in points, is it possible to have them permanently on mm. ??


Btw, i love what you are doing with Affinity!! I work with Illustrator for about 30 years now and your program looks great so far.

Thanks J, 

Yes I know where to change them, but what i don't like is that I have to change it every time I open a file someone sends to me, and i get a lot.

Also I have lots of Illustrator files that I want to use in Affinity, so even if the original units are in mm, Affinity sets them to points.

Maybe I want too much for this moment but perhaps in the near future?
