Parts List Units

84 Views, 1 Replies

I have looked through a few pages of forums and help articles but cannot seem to find my answer.  I actualy figured it out one time but I do not remember what I did.  I am putting a custom Parts List into and assembly drawing with a weight field.  I have a few parts that are reading in kg rather than lbmass (which I don't much like either).  But anyway, if I go into those parts and change the units to lbmass it does not change my parts list.  I know it cannot be too difficult since I have done it in the past.  Any help would be appreciated.

OK, I found one way to fix it but I do not know if this is the best/correct way.  First I go to the Edit Parts List menu then format the column I need.  If I go to the substitution tab and click the Apply Units Formatting button I can get everything to change to lbmass.

 

Is this the only way to do this?
