When creating tables it currently gives you the option of percent and inches to use as measurements if you are specifying their size.

Could we get cm and/or mm, plus perhaps pixels too please as alternative measurement units

+1 for this.

Sleet was enjoying a tasty beverage at his local tavern, when a Tarrasque showed up in the local area. He managed to valiantly get on it's back and ride it. How he did it is a mystery to this day...

Even better if some custom units could be incorporated for those that develop their game worlds to that level of detail. I rarely do, but I have in the past for certain worlds that I wanted to have a particular feel and I have known over GM's to do the same.

There's no reason not to have mm or cm if you have inches. If supported in your UI toolkit, px can be useful too. I'd also like to suggest em and/or points where appropriate.

I don't think that a user defined in-game unit is appropriate for defining the size of an out-of-game user interface element. (Would you normally think of your monitor as 6 fdasas wide and the Realm Works window 3?) It's doable, but weird to me. Then again, inches don't mean a whole lot either in terms of on-screen display.
