Hi all. In Lam Pro I am getting approx half metric and half imperial measurements. I have gone to file-options and changed to metric.In cutting instructions I get a readout to cut out the center blue strip 4.33 inches and 1.23 inches from fence. I also get repeating units 1.89 inches.I then have to convert to metric manually. All the lamination strips are given in metric. Is there any way I can get all metric measurements. Am I missing something simple.
Thanks
Peter

I have had no resolution to my problem in Lam Pro. Bob replied that he thought it is in the program but I have not been enlightened yet. Some help would be very nice.

Not sure if this will fix your issue or not.
Start LP,
Change options to metric.
Save LP file and exit.
Start LP and open saved file.

I noticed doing this I could get the drop down for cut width to show metric. Numbers at the bottom showed imperial and metric.

Thanks for that Mike. Unfortunately can't try that as I didn't want to save one that was not right I only printed. To try what you have suggested I will have to wait till I do a new one.

Peter. If possible post your LP file. We can download the file and see exactly what your dealing with. I save lots of LP files with different names. They ar

Sorry Mike I didn't save the file all I can tell you is as first post. All lamination strips come out in metric and cutting measurements from fence are imperial. I have changed through file - options to metric.

Mike if you put your Lamination PRO into metric and than do any type of lamination. Look at the screen instruction on making the cuts they will be in imperial

I notice in the print preview the instruction are not in metric.

The bottom of the screen reports in both. Think it is an issue Lloyd will have to address.

You could help me out by giving me a list of the LamPRO items that you know aren't available in metrics. Only list the ones you can't live without as I just don't have much bandwidth that isn't already being used.
