Hi olleb61 - welcome to the forum,

This Info tool will always use the settings for "Drawing Unit" which can be found below "Menu / Edit / Drawing Preferences / General / Drawing Unit.

Be aware - just to change this setting in an existing drawing will not automatically change the scale of your drawing - you have to do that manually.

Hope that helps.

Hi olleb61

You could also select the text and use the property editor to change it to read something different, for example if your text reads 400 (and you are working in cm) you could change it to read 4M by using the property editor :wink:
For the best support please state your operating system, QCAD version and add any supporting DXF/DWG files, screenshots etc...
