 Description

User should be able to select default measurement system for calculations.

Based on this setting calculation results should be always shown in units of this default measurement system.

Long overdue.

The settings file currently allows us to change from metric to imperial. Maybe add some settings there that control the default output units? 

I'd even be willing to mess around with the units file if need be. 

Thanks guys

I subscribe to Martin Kraskas view. It would be very easy for everybody to set his/her own enviroment without setting it every time again.

The problem might be also solved if there would be a template, where all those informations are sored. This might be useful to get the same results on different SMath-installations.

I propose that the user can configure what the default units for individual physical quantities should be. This could be done perhaps in the insert unit dialog ("make default"-button when a certain unit is selected in the right list).

Pre-defined units system buttons might set appropriate defaults.
