@William Reynish (billreynish) I'm not saying unit scale should be removed, I'm saying that to work with different units Blender should move from using unit scale to using display units (or working units like in Maya).
Hi, please let me propose default value for Empty Image Offset property.

First case test_bmesh.blend – coplanar geometry, not intended to work with BMesh solver whatsoever.

Can this be reverted to the previous behavior before the release? I depend on this very often in my work.

I can't think of a single use case where handling each vertex is more preferable than island during translate operation. But I can bring a lot use cases for handling whole island in hard surface area, including jewelry modeling.

Then what are criteria for an empty file?
I think we all can agree that a file with objects, object data, materials and textures cannot be empty.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) as I understand this option performing data cleanup after Factory Settings file is loaded. Which means as soon as Factory Settings would receive new default data—this feature will become obsolete and need to be updated.

Tested latest builds with factory settings on two Windows 10 machines, issue is clearly appearing on both of them.
Feb 2 2017
Windows only bug?
I tried the most recent windows builds: 3ab8895 both x64 and x32, Z hotkey still doesn't work after using F8.
I also tried 6edfa73 for VS 2015 x64, it doensn't work either.

@Bastien Montagne (mont29) that precisely was my point. All I/O add-ons should be updated in order for Blender's "Display Unit" to work in pipeline with other DCCs.
I'm sorry I did not make that clear.

Fixed by rBA7df41339ae89
@Vuk Gardašević (lijenstina) I've prepared the fix already, but OK.
Hi Eugene, I have looked into the problem as I promised and here is what I've found.

@Dalai Felinto (dfelinto) I hope you don't mind that I reopened and updated the task?
Also I can take the assignment if you guys have your hands full.

I am so sorry about that, here is complete steps to reproduce the error:
In that case, would that be acceptable?

Campbell's request: change title from "Print3D" to "Print3D Toolbox".

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) then yes, if we're not leaving Blender ecosystem, it will do very good.

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) it is not enough information to be sure if it is what I have requested.
- You did not explain how this change will work with BU, for e. g. what will happen when user will set scene units from m to mm? 1 m = 1 BU and 1 mm = 0.001 BU?
- If so, how transform tool input will respond to that? Will keyboard input for Translate tool convert "display unit" to BU?
- What will happen during geometry export to interchange formats (obj, stl)?

Looks like someone commented the code where brush object should be deleted on Apply All action.
Tweak Remove Brush operator anyway, since it will give an error if canvas object is deleted before Apply All.

Nice! Thanks :)

You are right, I'm sorry. I was too careless when analyzing causes, I will test better next time.
I agree with you on all topics except one:
bpy.utils.units.to_string('METRIC', 'VOLUME', 1.001, split_unit=True)
@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) Unfortunately bpy.utils.units.to_string() does not work with unit scales:
Description was missing for Metric and Imperial outputs.

@Andy Davies (metalliandy) hi Andy, this thread is about making Units UI comprehensible, so users could figure it out without first searching for a tutorial on YouTube.
Your complain is about the Unit System itself. Of course presets are basically just py scripts and we can do what ever we want, like change the scale of all objects in the scene to preserve their size in units for eg., but to me it looks like an insane idea.

In the description to this task this stackexchange question is specified as a use case for this feature, where open_mainfile is a much better solution.
empty file is mainly useful when you want to create a file from scratch and save it without having to manually clear the data.
Isn't libraries.write were created specifically for this purpose?
Apr 23 2016
@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) its now possible to save individual data blocks
Apr 22 2016
@RG Dengate (rdengate) So it’s just using a “factory settings” blend file with all default screen layouts, default brushes etc. This is unfortunate, I was searching for a way to create a completely empty blend file. *sigh*
Apr 20 2016
From the description I understand that this will not create completely empty blend file which would still contain user settings, space data, sculpt/texture brushes?

Additional class naming changes
Change class name to SCENE_MT_units_length_presets
No prefix for list items

Another option is not to attempt to use a generic preset system, then we can arrange things how we like, but means users wont be able to add their own so easily (which may be acceptable in this case)
Use unit type prefix so presets are ordered by imperial/metric
Feb 16 2016
Expand unit None/Metric/Imperial (takes up same amount of room)
Can we please not do that? I understand visual sacrifice in favor of efficiency when this can speed up workflow, but these are unit settings—you set them once, and then forget about it.
I specifically focused on minimalism and comprehensiveness of the UI, I tried to give user only necessary information as structured as possible, and expanded menus just break it.
I hope it wouldn't hurt if I update the UI for Units panel? The person who did the original design during 2.5 refactor project clearly did not look how other software handles same UI, so he made it look closer to 2.4 UI.
Also hide unused elements is not great user experience, grey them out instead.
Update diff according to given remarks. Also update UI for Units panel, to make it look less alien.

I am also considering a different approach, illustrated in animation below:
