Techpacker auto-converts your measurements when you switch your measurement units between inches and cm. 

 


 

There are two types of measurement units that we support for the sizing columns: 

  • Inches &
  • Centimeters (cm)

You can easily set your preferred unit of measurement for an individual tech pack from your tech pack settings.

However, you can also set the default measurement unit for your entire organization via organization settings. This helps keep your sizes consistent across all tech packs created by any team member. 

 


 

1. How to work with inches in fractions and inches in decimal

If your preferred unit of measurement is inches, you can choose between these two input formats: 

  • Inches in fraction (for example 1 1/2) and 
  • Inches in decimal (for example 1.5)

You can switch between these inches formats from your organization settings. Here's how it works - 

Step 1:  Slide out your side menu by clicking  icon located on the top-left corner of your screen.   Then click on Account & settings option.
