How do you set metric or imperial, or can you in Surveyor?

I have Driver set for Imperial and I assumed it applied to surveyor. The Tape Measure in surveyor gives readings in real world Feet. So I assumed the rest were in feet also, when setting the height of land and water.

I found recently that Google Earth gives elevation in feet, example my dock is 576 feet in google but measures 175.55 in surveyor. It appeared that my DEM map was 400 feet to low, but then I tried converting the 175.55 as meters to feet and it equals 579 feet. Which leads me to believe the surveyor readings are in metric, is this so?

If it is how can I change it to work in feet? I looked in the program settings and could not find any where to set it.:(
