Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
1.Set default line height to 1 unitless
2.Close inkscape
3.Open inkscape
4.Default line height is 1mm and you need to change line height (2 or 3 click to set again 1unitless) every time you open inkscape

Inkscape convert the default unit to the doc unit. with units change pt to mm and so on. this is bad but with unitless is totaly broken.

I feel god if can mark it as blocker for 0.92, because users usualy are more confortable with unitless line height

@JazzyNico - could you please set milestone to 0.92 (for now)?
@Jabiertxof - if this needs to be considered as release blocker, it might be best to bring it up on the mailing list or to notify the release manager directly (on irc).

It would be great if this could be further investigated, ideally in time for the bug fix release: besides auto-switching from unit-less or relative unit (%, em, ex) to absolute units (displayed in document units, stored in SVG user units aka 'px'), the conversion also seems off by factor 1/2.

Fixed by Tavmjong Bah in revision 15462:
 Prevent display units from effecting 'line-height' unit.
 Allow relative units to be saved in preferences for 'line-height'.

@jazzynico - could you pump milestone to 0.93 please, and add a bug task for 0.92.x?

Fix in rev 15462 tested successfully with lp:inkscape r15463 on Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS:
Relative units for line-height (%, em, ex) are saved to and restored from the preferences as expected (independent of the document units of the default template or the current document).

Isn't this 'fix committed' for 0.92.1?

From the commit message, it sounds to me as if it has been backported in
(would also need to be updated in release notes)
