Model properties --> UNITS: displayed on the status bar [mmKs]

Is there a way to make CREO 3.0 display the Model Properties --> UNITS in the Information bar at the bottom (or anywhere else for that matter)? It would be nice to see [mmKs] displayed somewhere on the information bar, or [IPS] or whatever the case may be. When doing an assembly, it is extremely annoying to have parts that do not match to completely ravage the work just because one forgot to change the units properly. Thank you, Colin.

There is no way to show units on the screen.

You may be able to develop a work around to show units in the model tree but by that time you would already see the problem.

You can correct units problems when changing the units based on your selections during units conversions.

If your model was done such that 1" was modeled as 1 mm, you can effectively scale the model during units conversion using the interpret option.
