@lubos it would be better if the Unit Name for inventory and non-inventory items are provided as a drop-down list.
when there are many users, they create items with unit name as Numbers, Nos., No. which are all the same but do not look good when selected on documents together.
i would like Manager to remember a unit name set previously so that it shows up as a drop-down list when creating new items. if the unit name is not available, the user can type in a new UOM which would be remembered for selection in the future.
