    I have a text box that calls to Parameters A & B for associated lengths in a stamp/label object. The problem is, the object uses metric conversions of length A/B, rather than tying to any kind of local or global parameters for imperial feet and inches. Is there a way to tie TEXT2 to DEFINE STYLE and associate with my project’s working units?

    You can request the formatting string to the project’s working units, for example REQUEST ("Linear_dimension", "", format_string) Please check the available requests in the documentation. After you have the formatter string, you need to create a string from the specific parameters value, with the STR or STR{2} functions, you’ll find the docs with sample on this page.
