Tip : You don't need to change the UOM (Unit of measurement) always . Say if you are using inches You can still use the figures and type 'mm' after it to get it applied in millimeters.

Similarly inches = "      Feet = '       Centimeters = cm ......... so on

BTW this only works on property bar and not in dockers etc.

How can I use this option when in the rectangle tool for example?

The unit selected is universal for the whole document.

When you select "mm", all measurement within the document will be in "mm"

I usually do that only when I need to enter certain measurement value in units other that the UOM.
