"Edit New" changed metric to imperial

I just had strange thing happened.
I had a saved 4mm drill,
then clicked "Edit New" to create a 6mm version.
Suddenly "Tip Dia" was in inch instead of millimeter.
Everything else seems to have stayed metric.

I can not reproduct it, then loading the tool from the library and clicking "Edit New" again.
So it's just something to look out for but without being able to reproduct it, it can probably
not be found or fixed any time soon.

Ok, it happened again.
This time "Tip dia" stayed metric but "Shoulder Dia" becomes imperial.

I can start HSMAdvisor again with the tool (now a 3.127mm 2-flute cutter)
and material still selected and
"Shoulder Dia" as well as "DOC" are in inch while everything else is metric.

Selecting a different tool and then the 3.127mm cutter again,
my DOC is not metric but by Shoulder dia stayed imperial.

OK I will check it out.
Thanks for feedback.


Just ran it through tests and it does not seem to happen at all.
The issue in your second comment relates to (already answered question) Shoulder Dia being new field and not having appropriate switch in the database.

I will keep an eye out for that, but so far seems like a non-issue.
