Description

If user selects meters, there should be no reason to display the total in kilometers (same thing for feet/yards/miles).
There's enough space in the text box to display such values so why not?

History

#1 Updated by Harrissou Santanna almost 4 years ago

Found that there's a "keep base unit" checkbox in general settings to select whether units should be kept. I wonder if by default, it should not be kept, and up to the user to select conversion.
