Just D/L it

Altium, Thanks for the proper metric support, NOT! in SCH for PCB directives & layout.

First thing I tried, as the lack of PCB rules definition in SCH & their translation in 
98/99/SE was years behind anyone else.

Metric values entered are auto converted to imp units after they are saved. Once in 
PCB and converted back, you guessed it, 1mm becomes (ex. 1.00001 mm) so I think it is 
fair to assume we can still expect the usual rounding errors in layout throughout. As 
well as all the other 'LOW' priority things that bug me on a daily basis.

But the UI is now nice & shiny.......

Best Regards
