Welcome to the forum. During the installattion, you must have choosen METRIC as your default project unit. By doing that all your component parameter setting will shop up in metric. To change to IMPERIAL, go to Settings > Project Units (UN) and change all your units to IMPERIAL. You have to do that each time you want to switch between Metric and Imperial. TIP: In metric setup, you can enter your unit in imperial, Revit will auto convert to imperial unit. You can do the same when in imperial too for metric measurement. Revit is very flexible here.

Thanks a lot,

But, is there a way to have both metric and imperial library for example have the wall in metric and imperial?

Because when a did new project and a choose imperial i don't have much option for the walls.

Thank you
