Cricut Design Space – inches to centimeters

If you’re wondering “how do I change measurements in Design Space” then don’t panic – it just takes three clicks of your mouse to change them!

I’m using Cricut Design Space Beta v5.4.10 for this tutorial.

1) – Click the “hamburger icon” on the top left of your screen. This looks like three little rectangles, sat one-on-top of each other.

Click the little circles next to metric and imperial measurements to switch your canvas.

In case you’re not sure which is which: Inches = Imperial and Centimeters = Metric.

When you’re happy with your selection, click the “X” icon in the top right of the “Design space settings” popup.

Repeat the same steps again to change your measurement settings at any time.

Top tip: Don’t forget which measurement type you switch to, otherwise your projects may end up being a bit different to how to imagined when you cut them!
