Currently, polkadot-js doesn't allow me to select a unit when specifying balances in the Developer > Extrinsics section, which means that all balances must be specified in the smallest unit (10^12 is one KSM, etc.). So instead of just transfering 1 KSM, I'm now sending 1,000,000,000,000 Planck. This is very inconvenient, and it used to be different, as seen in this screenshot:
Is this a metadata problem? Is it possible to configure polkadot-js to at least use the standard unit (KSM, DOT, etc.)?
Edit. So running
polkadot --chain=kusama --tmp on the master branch of the Polkadot repository still has units for extrinsics like
transfer (also works with mainnet, westend, etc.), but when using
polkadot --dev --tmp, units are disabled. When connecting with Kusama via the polkadot-js browser plugin, units are disabled. What's going on here?
It seems very much like this behavior is still available and can be activated using some kind of chain configuration.
