How do I Change from Meters to Feet and Inches?

You can display measurements in meters/centimeters or in feet/inches. 

Try It Yourself

  1. Open the RoomSketcher App.
  2. Click or tap Menu (yellow button at top left of the app), and then under Tools, click Meters or Feet.
    Or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl/Cmd + T.


  3. Choose Meters or Feet.


    Meters will display your measurements using the metric system. Feet will display measurements using the imperial (or US measurements) system. 
    Tip: You can switch between the two settings and any displayed sizes will convert from mm to ft, and vice versa.
  4. To return to your project, press X in the top left.
