How to increase unit precision?
« on: June 13, 2011, 02:09:10 PM »
If I set my hops units to oz, then precision to 3, and increment to .125, my hops show 1.000, 1.130, 1.260, 1.390, 1.520, etc.
What am I doing wrong here?

set the precicion to 3 set the increments to 0.1 if you want to weigh in 1/10 ounce increments. 0.125 will give you 1/8 ounce increments. Does this help? If you really want 0.125 ounces then set precison to 3 and the increments to 0.005. It takes a very good scale to weigh to 0.005 ounces accurately. I use 2 with a 0.01 increment.

Really? That's kind of a drag.
I want 1/8oz increments in the increase amnt decrease amnt option.
If want to use the button to go from .25oz to .375oz I have to set it to .005 and hit it 13 times?

It also seems I've lost the ability to type 9o in the field and have it convert to oz. It thinks I'm saying 9#.

Hi,
  If you type in "9 oz" it does work...

  I'll take a close look at the increments - I've bookmarked this one to work on!

doesn't work on mine. 9o = 9#.

Try enter "oz" and not "o" after your number!

 ;D

The old one just took an "o" so I wasn't actually READING your response.
I'm sharp like that!
