    Great news!  A recent release to Workiva has now made this feature available.

    Thanks so much for your patience and feedback. Let us know if you have any questions or need anything else. Cheers!

    Hi Erik!

    I see what you mean. You are correct, currently the Measurement Units are tied to the Locale chosen in the Language & Formats section of the Document Properties. I've passed along your feedback and use case here for the team to consider allowing a user to set their own here, or to create an English (Int'l) version as you mention.

    That being said, one thing you could do is to choose English (Canada) as your Locale, which defaults to Centimeters. You can adjust any of the other formats as needed but the only one that changes for Canada vs. US  is the Default Date Order.

    Hopefully this helps some. In the meantime, I'll keep you updated on your request. Thanks as always and have a happy Friday!

    Hi Mike

    Just letting you know that I have the exact same issue, and was about to make a post when I landed on this thread. I would also like to ask for this feature to be made available. The solution of selecting English (Canada) would not be sufficient for me I think because we require US spelling. Canadian English is a blend of US and UK English as far as I am aware

    Good insights Megan Daniell. I hadn't thought about the spelling aspect. Thanks for sharing. I'll add your comments to our existing request.
