We have been used AutoDesk Inventor more than 15 years, but management want move to SolidWorks for money issue.

When I just touch SolidWorks, I have lot of headache. Below is one of them.

I know lot of people asked same question, but it looks like SolidWorks still not give a solution for it.

I made a part in whatever unit, but I need make drawing in both unit system for European and north american customer.

I think SolidWorks  should provide user a parameter in order to get the unit (Weight and length unit) name and put it in title block.

The parameter should be as "UnitOfWeight" and "UnitOfLength" in Drawing.

It is a piece of cake for the software provider which could take away lot of headache of user, but I do not know why SolidWorks do not focue on user requirement.
