In .pretty-libraries, do we only use metric footprints?

I started a new project and I want to assign footprints to the components. I only see metric footprints for the resistors and capacitors. But the components in my drawer didn't change over night. What happened to the old footprints with 0.12 inch spacing?

My current project is using THT components with imperial lead spacing.

Pins spaced on a 105 mil pitch don't measure correctly when metric measurement is selected. So I guess the conversion between metric and imperial is exact intentionally to avoid these problems.

Metric conversion should be exact, with no rounding errors. And now most new SMD parts are originally metric, so using metric is important.
