The Info portion of the Sidebar contains attribute options for shapes, lines, paths, and text. Each tab corresponds to a set of attributes and is explained in further detail below.
Values displayed in the Info portion of the Sidebar default to Inches or Degrees.

The entered values will be automatically converted to their equivalent in Inches or Degrees.

If you enter 100 millimeters (mm) for the Width of a selected figure, then it will be automatically converted to 3.937 inches, as shown below:
