Define a base unit of measurement for a canvas

Use the Units & Scale inspector to define the base unit of measurement for drawing on the canvas, and whether objects on the canvas are drawn to a particular scale.

Start by choosing one of the available Base Units in the inspector. There are four Base Unit types to choose from, including:

  • Points (pt)
  • Pixels (px)
  • Centimeters (cm)
  • Inches—fractional (in)

The Units and Scale inspector

The actual size of your diagram does not change when you change the Base Units from one type to another; it is merely measured differently. Also, the inspectors display measurements in whichever unit you select.
