    Very nice job. This was my first look at the SMF calculator.

    I choose my oils in oz. using the 40% volume calculation, but I actually measure in grams for accuracy.I cannot find a way to switch between the two. Am I missing something?

    I'm not sure what you're saying by "40% volume"? I set mine up as a percentage of the recipe as well, then measure in ounces usually. Then, in the output, you get the grams/ounces. Choose how many grams your recipe will be, then use the percentage to make the recipe. Like this:

    This one shows grams.
    Then, when you add your oils you see:

    Then, at the end, on the right, you get the amounts again, and also the liquid/lye calculation:

    Now, if you use "ounces" as the measurement in the beginning, the detail shows all of them, %, ounces and grams:

    Apologies. I found the side-by-side for oz and gms. The problem is that everything is jumbled up on my screen and overlapping in both IE and Chrome as well as on my iPad.
