    inches vs cm (powerpoint 97)

    Somehow my scale was changed from inches to centimeters. I have gone through every menu/button I can find and I cannot find the place to change it back. It is clearly in my installation somewhere, since a colleague gave me a file that was in inches on his machine and opens in centimeters in mine. Although I personally believe that metric is superior, all of my paper is unfortunately in inches and I would like to be able to choose.

    Can anyone help?

    I believe that you system setting for measurements has been set to metric - at least this knowledge base article seems to suggest that. Please post back and let us know the outcome.

    Good idea. I went to the regional setting and checked--they were set to US system. But I am always suspicous about these defaults. So I changed them to metric, exited to set metric, then re-entered and reset to US. That worked.
