Support for additional numeric types/custom number formats


I’d like to be able to specify fields as being lengths, weights, temperatures, etc. as once you have a lot of number fields it isn’t easy to see or remember what type of data is in each field.

Alternatively (or ideally also) being able to format numbers using custom formats as can be done in Excel would make life easier - for example in Excel a format of 0.0" cm" would display a number as a length


This would make things much less messy.
For example, now we have 3 fields for specifying the dimensions of a box. (10 X 12 X 30). that takes a lot of real estate in the current setup.
Having one field for that (similarly to the date + time field) would makes things much more simple.
