Overview of units used on Windy
These are the layers for which it is not possible to change preferred units in the mobile app. Therefore the user must go from the mobile app to a desktop to switch between units that will be saved as preferred also in the app.
# on Windy Layer Available units Dropdown in preferences Scale on map 6 Rain accumulation mm, in no - does not change yes 14 Freezing altitude ft, m no yes 20 Cloud tops m, ft no yes 21 Cloud base m, ft no yes 29 Sea temperature C, F no yes 30 Currents kt, ms, mph, kmh no yes 35 Pressure hPa, inHg, mmHg no yes
These are the layers that are missing imperial units:
# on Windy Layer Available units Metric Imperial 32 Dust mass ug/m3 yes no 33 SO2 mass ug/m3 yes no

What's the right way of setting cloud base units to ft? Cannot find any option in settings -- it was in ft before and now I have it in meters suddenly and cannot find where to set it back. Have I missed some well-hidden configuration?
I have managed to get metric_cbase="ft" pushed to the server from my desktop Chrome and get it pulled by the Android app in turn. So it should be sorted for me now, but don't tell me this is the only way how to do it! :-)
@ivo This is an overview of layers, in which is not possible to change units in a mobile app. You need to go to the desktop version and change it there.
