    Hi everyone,

    I've been testing out the GM for Lion and I just realized that when i change my region to Mexico under system preferences --> Language & Text --> Formats
    -->Currency (Mexican Peso) and measurement units to metric it uses MM instead of CM.

    Is there a way to change this to CM? (In SL it displays them in CM)

    I found out because in Word 2011 when I try to create a custom paper size it's showing them in MM instead of CM.

    Any Suggestions

    The custom paper size is 21.5cm x 33.5cm

    Thank You !!!

    Well, first thing you could do is just enter 215mm x 335mm.
    I have no idea how to modify it back, but I could have overlooked something.
    Maybe they thought using millimetre was actually more SI compliant?

    I did converted from CM to MM and that does the job, I was just wondering if there was a way to have it like SL does.

    Thanks !!
