Summary0004069: TechDraw/View/Lines: Enable entry and display of values in the users chosen unit system
DescriptionAs a user, I would like to be able to specify the specific units when entering in the values to the values of:

Extra Width, Hidden Width, Iso Width, Line Width

that are in the TechDraw/View tab.

This should ideally work similar to how other values are allowed, such as entering in length dimensions in the Sketcher Workbench.

I would also like the dimensions to be displayed as I have specified them, and not have them converted for display back into SI units: I would want to be able to type in 0.001" and have it be displayed as such, and not have it switch to 0.0254mm, that is, it should respect the preferences setting in "Preferences/General/Unit System", which for my use, is currently "US customary (in/lb)".

Currently, the values are in mm but there is no indication as such, and I had to find out by asking the forum for clarification.

The overall goal I have is described in https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=37891#p322484
Steps To Reproducehttps://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=37955&p=322944#p322864 is the associated forum post where we concluded a feature request was in order.

Could a mod please change the "Project" on this one from "Sketcher" to "TechDraw"?

Thanks.

It is a glaring defect in a tracking system that disallows the original user from making changes to the original issue being reported. Otherwise I would have been able to make the change myself.
