This window allows you to change note and dimension settings on the fly while you are constructing a part. The units in the fields are those presently selected in the Construction Units field on the Properties dialog box (File>Properties>Units/Tolerances).

The Settings Window can be docked vertically on the left or the right of your screen, or it can "float" (hang in the workspace without an anchor to any one position).

Settings Window:
