    Hi,

    When I deal with the word document for my clients, I usually need to convert the length between English units and metric. For example: Inch to metre. I have to calculate them manuanly. I just hope there is a way I can get a length converter in Word so that I can convert them easily.

    Is that possible in word2010? Thanks

    I found an article for you that was written in 2013. Unfortunately, it does not specify the version(s) of Word it works for. Basically, you click on "File", then "Options" (bottom left of the window), then "Advanced". Scroll down to the Display section, and one of the options will be "Show measurements in units of", with a drop down menu. Click on the down arrow, and you can select from the options on the list, some of which are metric. They are specific, though, so you can change to centimeters or millimeters, but cannot change from "English" to "Metric" measurement.
