If short form for the unit Points is "pkt" in could "pt" be accepted as alias instead of giving error message?
In Swedish version of InDesign (and other Adobe Apps) to enter a unit in points we must type "pkt" where I believe most languages accept "pt". It would be a better experience for the user if the software would accept either "pt" or "pkt", especially if teaching a class where there are users with different language versions following the same instructions. There is no point in receiving an error that an invalid unit has been entered if the intent is clear, and unambiguous.
Please change so that either pt or pkt can be entered as unit, that the unit is displayed as pkt is not a problem (I can enter units in Pica,mm, cm and more why can teh software not simply make a conversion that 12pt = 12pkt).
I am not sure if there is similar problem with units in other languages.

I have experienced the exact same problem, the above post is an excellent suggestion.
