Explict evaluation of symbolic with the built in unit system

Hi All,

I currently have run into a small issue with the way that Mathcad displays the unit system when using the explicit command. The default in-built unit system defines a Force * Distance as joule rather than a moment which is what I want. To avoid having to change from joules to moments (N*m) every time I calculate the capacity of a beam I have created a custom unit system which defaults force * m to kN*m. However, as you will see below when I call on a result that is calculated earlier in the mathcad sheet with the explicit function it will cause unnecessary unit conversations (see 1x10^4 / 1/x10^3). Is there a way of controlling the units in the situation? I am keen to find a solution for this as it complicates the calculation for the person reviewing the work.

FYI I have a mathcad prime 3.0 so if there is a solution with this version I will happily switch.
