User settings not stored by software?
Is the ability to choose millimeters or inches as the standard measuring unit working in the version 3.5 software? Every time I go into Edit->Settings, I choose "millimeter" from the "Grid Distance X" dropdown box, click "Set as Default" and then hit "OK". When I open the settings dialog again, everything is back to inches. I looked in the registry for where the program would store these settings, but only found entries for the positions of the various dialogs and windows. Are these settings actually being stored somewhere?

The measuring unit can be defined at Edit -> Settings -> Other. Here you can choose between inches and millimeters and set it as default. The grid settings are subordinated to what was defined in 'Others'. Reason is, that you can't have the grid in millimeters and the standard measuring in inches.
A faster way to switch between metric and standard if needed, is to click on the dimension unit in the bottom left-hand corner of the status bar.
