reproduced with Inkscape 0.47 and 0.47+devel r9456 on OS X 10.5.8

The 'Custom Size' widget in 'Document Properties' dialog always reverts to 'px', disregarding both the unit chosen before the last saving of the document as well as the document's 'Default units' setting.

1) The "Default units" setting in 'Documents properties' is stored as:

   <sodipodi:namedview (…) inkscape:document-units="mm" (…)>

2) The "Units" setting of the 'Custom Size' widget
   in 'Documents Properties' is stored as:

   <sodipodi:namedview (…) units="mm" (…)>

When opening a document the 'Custom Size' widget does not load either its own setting nor does it respect the document's "Default units" setting.

@Alex - Are you still working on this issue?
I've almost finished a patch and just noticed this report...

jazzynico (jazzynico) wrote :

Patch successfully tested on Windows XP and Ubuntu 10.04.

The logic is:
1. If the units attribute is not set, the Units field is initialized with the document default unit.
2. If the units attribute is set, the Units field is initialized with its value.

Please test!

(I'll wait a bit to know if Alex also has a fix so that we can choose the best one).

Minor issue: the units for the page margins inside the 'custom size' section seem to be taken from the default units, not from the units explicitly chosen for the custom size.

See also bug #499942 “"Fit page to selection" needs margin options”, comment #12.

Tested with Inkscape 0.48+devel r9788 + bug586955.diff on OS X 10.5.8

oops - sorry - revert my last comment please ;) The units are taken from the custom size units selector (I tripped over my own setup, using different rulers units (default units) and misreading the actual margin sizes).

I tried to fix this a few months ago but I ran into weird xml updating bugs. My development computer is offline for a while so go ahead and commit the patch if it works. I'll test too in a week or two when I get my computer back.
