Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.

We have an experimental design which includes some components engineered in Imperial units. To avoid back-and-forth conversions of dimensions, I registered a small number of new Imperial unit definitions ("inch", "foot", "mil") in my G4 application, along with the corresponding scale constants. This allows us to set dimensions directly from the engineering drawings, without having to convert.
Unfortunately, this has had an unfortunate side effect. Some of the diagnostic messages printed by G4 (and by our own application) make use of G4BestUnit for output. With the new unit definitions, we sometimes get geometry warnings like
Overlap with mother volume ! Overlap is detected for volume Fe55SourceFoil with its mother volume Fe55SourceCapsule at mother local point (-1.46749,0.478579,1.4745), overlapping by at least: 1.00394 mil
Is there any way to "exclude" a G4UnitDefinition object from being used by G4BestUnit? Or should I drop the creation of G4UnitDefinitions here (which means they aren't available to macro commands) and just have the static const's for use in code?
