Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
The same Default Units/Time are displayed for Material Resources whether the User Preference for displaying Durations is set to Days or Hours.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Resource Default Units/Time would be multiplied by the number of Hours per Days in the Resource Calendar when displaying Unit of Measure/Day.
 

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Log into P6 Web.
2. Go to Administer, My Preferences and set to display Units of Time in 'hours', Show label enabled, and Units/Time format set to 'Show as Units/Duration'. Save changes.
3. Go to Resources, Administration and create a new Material Resource.
4. Enter the Default Units/Time (e.g. 2u/h).
5. Go to Administer, My Preferences and change display Units of Time to 'days'. Save change.
6. Go to Resources, Administration and select the newly created Material Resource. Note Default Units/Time is the same (e.g 2u/d).
