Please help, why when i modify in graphical view (GUI) such stretching a beam, the unit in my design parameter in the staad input changes such as meter change to millimeter.
It so tiersome to modify again the units of many LY, LZ, UNT for just minor update in GUI (graphical view.
Is there a remedy for these problem?
The problem you are describing is not known to me. However, I would suggest to check the input unit set with desired settings. Like, if you are working with kN and M, then the input unit is also set the same.
Is it happening for all files (including example files) or for some specific files? If not happenning for all files, can you share the file where you are getting this issue?
What is the version number of STAAD.Pro?v The latest version is 22.10.00.153. If you are using any older version please upgrade to this latest version and check.
Also I would request you to raise a service request so that we can take remote and investigate the issue.
Thanks & regards,

Thanks please see below, when i modify in GUI the unit meter kn will be removed by staad and LY 2.05 will be change by staad to 2050 mm.
Seems to be an issue with input unit as I mentioned in above response. Please use correct input unit. If you still face problem please create a service request.
You can only use the UNIT command before the line PARAMETER 1. UNIT command cannot be used inside the design parameters block.
