I am looking at converting some of my map projects to Pro, and can't find how to change the map units on the scale bar.  This seems like it should be simple!  It is set to miles and I would like it to be set to feet.  I have tried the scale bar properties/units and see nothing there to change, my map options are set to feet.  Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Select the scale bar. Go to the Scale Bar ribbon, Design tab. In the Units section of that ribbon select the unit you want from the dropdown list.

Thank you! Was going crazy. Need to get more comfortable with contextual ribbon tabs.
