@Bastien Montagne (mont29), the file has cube at 100 BU eexactly, however scaling it up a bit indeed doesn't show anything apart from meters, going back to BU shows all the decimal points. So doesn't seem to be a precision issue. Do you mind having a look? :)

Thing is, new code now always show same amount of significant digits - 3 in case of unit display by default. Previous one was showing from 4 to 6, will check on bringing one more, but it really does not makes much sense to show more in units display imho…

I'm sorry for not replying earlier... computer problems. I see, well I was not sure if this was intentional to display less decimals over 100 meters or feet. For me, my model is 458.45 meters long. And the decimals matters "somewhat", as I want it as close to the real thing as possible.

Set it to 5 digits, like e.g. for location.
