2013 Material physical properties - units

Hi there,

 

I've just noticed that when I view/edit the physical properties of a material, the units are not in metric/iso format. I'm certain that a couple of months ago when I added some materials to the library, they were in metric/iso format. Is this a setting somewhere? or has this changed since SP1.1?

Can someone confirm this, or am I the only one who has this issue?

 

Best regards,

In the lower left corner of the Material browser you will find this menu:

Found the solution myself already. At the bottom left corner of the material browser there is an option 'Set Display Units' (see image below).

One thing to remember when changing the Display Units, is that it applies that change to the entire library and not just that material.  This may or may not be an issue for you.  Just a heads up!
