    Office 2010 Unit of Measurements Deployment

    Hi all,

    Wondered if anyone could help. We have Office 2010 deployed on the network. Trouble is, the units of measurements are all in inches. I know this can be changed in the options of Office by a user.

    I wondered if there was a registry key or something I could send out to mass change the units of measurements to cm.

    Any ideas, would be grateful.

    No idea where the setting for Word etc. is stored, but I do know that normally it defaults to whatever the locale of the computer is set to. Find Region and Language on the control panel and check the unit setting:

    If it's wrong, unfortunately there's no regular Group Policy setting to correct it. However, if you are using (or able to being using) Group Policy Preferences, you can set it in User Configuration > Preferences > Control Panel Options > Regional Options.
