Hrm, the output being only in one format can be a problem, but it’s
not as critical. I would still love for *that* to be fixed, i.e. either
only ISO/IEC 60027-2 units or both those and decimal.

OK, thanks for confirming. I heard twohundred-something across the room,
which would have been quite off, but didn’t have a chance to visually
inspect myself.

Could this information (valid unit sufficēs) be added to the dialogue
where the size is entered? Screen space should suffice.

I’ll repurpose this bug for that (both input and output changes).
