Scale Planes command- set screen in mm


New member

I would like to measure the dimensions of a solid directly on screen using the Scale Planes command. However inorder to optimize accuracy I have to store my computer screen dimensions in millimeters with the following two variables:

set CATWidthMMOfScreen = width_in_millimeters
set CATHeightMMOfScreen = height_in_millimeters

Do I input the above variables in the run command or do I have to go into the catia enviroment? How can I determine what unit of measurement the dimensions of my screen is currently stored in. I am running windows xp.

Thank you for your time.
