Moving an object negative imperial units works incorrectly. Moving an object -X' Y" moves the object negative X feet but positive Y inches. It requires you to type -X' -Y" or -(X'Y") instead which is not how negative imperial units are written.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Open blender
- Click on the splash screen image to make it go away
- In the scene properties, change the "Unit System" under "Units" to "Imperial"
- Delete the default cube
- Add a cube
- Type "G" type "Z" type "-1" hit "Enter"
- In the "Operator Panel" on the lower left hand side, type in -1'6"
- Notice the cube move up 6" instead of down
- The final position shows as -0.5 instead of -1.5
12 inches = 1 foot
3 feet = 1 yard
1,760 yards = 1 mile
Note: Everything including architectural plans/shop drawing in the US are in imperial units. We are so sorry world.
