Interesting bug

Using WF3
So I built an assembly in [mm]. There are a few angle mates in the assembly. 65deg being prominent.
To create the drawing, I needed my primary units to be [in] so I went
to "setup"...blah blah and changed the units from mmkgs to inlbs.
Well guess what. Those angle mates were converted as though they were a mm dimension.
So my angle mates were changed from 65deg to 2.559deg.
Irritating, but humorous none the less.

Did they actually move or did the notation just change? Can't imagine what it would have changed into. It's not radians which would have been about 1.13, but that is the basis of angular calculations in that system of units. If you want to see what all the units are within mmkgs, go to 'Edit>Setup>Units' and click on the Info button.

The parts in the assembly actually moved to a different location corresponding to the new angular dimension. I've been able to repeat this in three different assemblies.
Just thought I'd see if anybody else had run into this, and give a word of caution to others. This could really screw up an assembly if a guy weren't careful.

On an older version I've converted from English to metric and had conics with defined rho values change by a multiple of 25.4... So they crashed... Feh...

Hard to figure why it would try to convert a unitless value when it's not IN its system of units. But I bet they got that fixed in a hurry!
