Keep Scene Interface Settings?

Is there any way to keep the Scene Interface Settings from reverting back? I create a new scene, go to Scene Interface Settings and set the Displayed Unit to Inches and when I save and reopen the file it reverts back to feet every time. I can't find a way to permanently set this in the preferences either. Am I missing something?

    Inches & feet are the same measuring system. Do you mean the scene reverts to meters?

    If you have a box that you enter a value into and it shows inches, try typing the value in feet that you want followed by ft and hit enter. The inches will return, but the value will in inches will equal the foot value you typed in. I know it can be annoying.


    If I'm wrong in my assumption, it could also be the scene magnitude you're working in. You might have selected a small scene when what you want is a large scene.

    I know that feet and inches are the same measuring method. We figured out on another forum that it has to do with scene magnitude. If you use Small, then everything is calculated in inches. If you use Medium or Large, it's feet. I do all my work in Medium, but prefer to work in Inches. So when I go into Scene/Interface/Displayed Unit and change it to Inches... when I save and close the file then re-open it, it reverts back to Feet.

    Then I guess you've answered your own question. Less than a foot would be the decimal equivalent of inches.
