Measurement preferences

Will Godfrey
I work exclusively in millimetres, but Inkscape keeps reverting to pixels. This
is extremely annoying, and I can't seem to find any way of *permanently* setting
all such measurements to mm.

Am I missing something, or can this be changed?

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.

sounds similar to https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1671691

Thanks for your reply. It seems that was it, and gave me the clue to a solution.

I created a new empty 'frame' with my preferred settings, then opened the
original file, selected all, and pasted it into this frame. Saving and
reloading seems fine... so far!
