A wish, not a problem. It would be incredible if we could include the units with our numbers. As calc performed the calculations put in it would also take into account the units of each number and give a final unit according to the system of units desired/entered. For instance if I had an object of 100 kg multiplied by an acceleration of 9.81 m/s^2 I would get an output of 9810 N.
Steps to reproduce:
Dimensional analysis is not present.
Platform (if different from the browser):
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0
I could see this being a new cell format (like "unit formula") or something like that. I'm going to mark as Lowest priority because I think realistically it won't affect many users and it's going to be a bit tough to implement. But, we'll see what we can do.
Thanks for the suggestion

According to https://mmohrhard.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/integrating-libreoffice-with-gnome-documents.pdf (page 31), this work has begun.
If so, is there a place to track its progress?
