How to move whole project to another measurement unit

Hi, I'm a newbie with InVision Studio.

I learnt in one of the videos on the site that the responsive design works only when the measurement units are expressed in percent and not in pixels. But I faced a problem while I was trying to create a project. I grouped some objects and text, but I couldn't change the unit as group and I must do it for each element of the group. That's pretty annoying.
I was aking myself if there's a way to change the measurement unit of all the document.

Thank you

Hi Simone,

Sorry for the frustration with having to change elements individually. I personally know how that feels.

Though responsive designs can now work well even in groups, you can always change the measurement unit of a group by first turning it to a container.
Groups innately inherit the measurement unit of the artboard they are in while containers acts like an artboard of their own (within the main artboard) and so things like meeasurement units can be changed easily within containers.

You can also check out this helpful article as it talks about clear differences between groups and containers and also explains responsive designs.

I hope this helps and feel free to ask if you have further questions.

Hi Simone,

Thanks for reaching out here in Community while you're getting acquainted with Studio! We hope that you're enjoying your experience with Studio so far. The article that Wurah mentioned above is a great piece to reference for the issue that you've mentioned!

After looking into this a bit more, you should be able to change the units for all layers within an artboard when the whole artboard is selected as seen in this screencast. If you're not experience this intended behavior, can you please let us know so we can troubleshoot further? 

Hope this helps!
