Units of Measurement
The program will happily handle inputs in either the metric (metre/cms) or imperial (foot/inch) system of measurement. However, regardless of input units, all internal calculations are performed using the metric system. 

Many UK users mainly use the imperial system for measuring sizes and giving quotes to customers, but are invoiced for their mouldings they buy, by the metre. In this case you should select Dual units of measurement as this will allow you to operate mostly in feet and at the same time the program will want moulding prices to be quoted in pence per metre (which is how you are billed).
