I get 1.0 Nm. But how to get 1.0 N.m


enter image description here


inter-unit-product is an available option and described in the documentation. To get correct spacing you should use ${}\cdot{}$. However I prefer a tighter spacing by $\cdot$.

\SI[inter-unit-product =$\cdot$]{1.0}{\newton\meter}\\
\SI[inter-unit-product =${}\cdot{}$]{1.0}{\newton\meter}\\

enter image description here

To set his behavior for the whole document you can specify the option via \sisetup

\sisetup{inter-unit-product =$\cdot$}

    I want this setting for whole document. – sandu Jun 8 '12 at 8:53

    @sandu: \sisetup{inter-unit-product =$\cdot$} – Marco Daniel Jun 8 '12 at 8:54

    @MarcoDaniel One should use \si[inter-unit-product = \ensuremath{{}\cdot{}}] to get the corrected spacing. – Svend Tveskæg Apr 10 '13 at 12:57
  • Setting this behaviour for the whole document directly at the package call is done without the math typesetting $-symbols: \usepackage[inter-unit-product =\cdot]{siunitx} – Steeven May 11 '17 at 7:15

Sorry for the zombie reply, but aren't the units typeset in math mode? In that case:

\SI[inter-unit-product =$\cdot$]{1.0}{\newton\meter}

won't compile. You should use:

\SI[inter-unit-product =\ensuremath{\cdot}]{1.0}{\newton\meter}

    This is already covered in the other answer (to some extent). – Werner Mar 1 '16 at 19:04
