Cranium and Synapse assign display units to each property they manage. This assignment is stored at the application level. This means that every open document will use the same set of units. It also means that two separate Cranium applications can open the same knowledge base but have the data displayed in different units.
Units can be changed by choosing the Set Units command from the Options menu or by clicking the left mouse button on a displayed units control. Units controls are typically found to the right of data controls.
|Property values are currently displayed in units of K.
|The Property control lists all physical properties known to the application.
|The Units control lists all available units of measure for the selected property.
|Pressing the dialog's Std Units button will select the standard units in the Units control for the selected property.
|Property values are now displayed in units of R.
The units you select for displaying values are stored in your user preferences on the current computer. Thus, when you close Cranium or Synapse and then reopen it, your units of measure selections are retained.
