    Although I have been using option 7 for the last 2 years; whenever I need to update postage costs etc, I always tend to lose track of the actual weight values.

    I know the units relate to Lbs & Ozs, but are they expressed as 1.5Lbs if the actual weight is 1Lb 8Ozs ?

    It's a shame that there is not a button to either select Metric or Imperial weight as the unit value.

    Yes, use decimals, 1.5, for 1lb8oz.

    Units is whatever you want it to mean, sometimes weight; the number of bottles, cubic feet, kilos, or whatever. So I don't think a button would really help.
