    You can just change the document's unit of measurement to mm if you want everything done in mm. Just right-click on a ruler, I think.

    What you may be suggesting, and what I would love, is for ID to be able to use different units for different things, like the rulers in inches, type-related things in points, object-related things in mm, etc.

    A little clarification of when this occurs in my work:
    If I have a particular word or phrase--or any string of text--that I need to search for, I will often select and copy it so I can paste it into the "Find what:" field. ID automatically changes the "Search:" scope to "Selection," though this is almost NEVER what I want.
    What it's doing is searching a selection for itself. If I realize that my client's name is misspelled on page 3 of a 500 page project, I'm going to want to make sure it's not misspelled anywhere else. To search for it, I'll select and copy "Amalgamated Coking Producks Incorporated" and paste it in the search window. I'll put "Amalgamated Cooking Products Incorporated" in the "Change to" field, and ID will search the selected text ("Amalgamated Coking Producks Incorporated") for "Amalgamated Coking Producks Incorporated."
    Surprise! It will find it and replace it. Once.
    Then it will tell me (with the annoying search completed message pop-up) that the search is completed. If I don't know that "Amalgamated Coking Producks Incorporated" exists twice (or 500 million times) in the document or story, I'll wrongly think I'm safe.
    Whether I hit Change/Find or Change All, the result is that it's changed once and I'm told the search is completed.
    I've been bothered by this for almost as long as I've used ID, which is as long as ID has existed, so I should know better, but it still gets me sometimes, forcing me to re-do searches, wasting my time and adding pointless clicks.
    This behavior introduces massive potential for error into people's work and needs to be fixed.

    This is one of the most annoying aspects of InDesign. If I'm searching the whole document (or the story), it finds what I'm looking for, I do something outside the search window, and some text is selected, then when I click back in the search window "document" or "story" changes to "selection." If I do another search, it won't find what I'm looking for because it's not in the selection. If I don't notice that it's searching only the selection, I'll wrongly think there's nothing to find.
