Can I change the measurement unit of a Draw.io diagram? By default, all the measurements are in pt except the page size (in mm).

I'd like to enter the shape dimensions in mm or inch instead of pt.

Is it possible at all?

Nope.. That won't be possible. Convert mm/inch to pt and work with it. It's tedious, but also the only way 1mm=2.83465pt & 1inch=72pt

  • A nice workaround? It is not nice. And I would not call it a workaround. As it is the obvious way to work if this feature is not available. – Heiner Jun 14 '17 at 7:10

    As of posting this comment, 1 inch in draw.io is equal to 100 points. Convention dictates that (1 in == 72 pt), but the application doesn't seem to be designed that way. – kccricket Oct 26 '17 at 15:13
  • By just trying things, I was able to get what appear to be inch-sized major (quarter-inch sized minor) ticks by setting grid to 25 pts. (This bears no obvious relation to 72 pt / in. - but I'm curious if there is one.) – Dav Clark Dec 26 '18 at 20:22
