    Okay, so I installed SDK on my brand new laptop. However, in the 2D view, the unit measurements do not show up. Any idea why?

    EDIT: Evidently this laptop is destined to not be able to map. Upon opening the Model browser, Hammer instantly crashes and terminates.

    Specs of the laptop? the crashing problem may just be due to outdated or incorrect drivers.

    As a heads up, be careful when mapping on laptops. Compiling uses alot from the processor thus the heat builds very fast. I used my brand new school laptop earlier last year all the time for mapping and now I regret it because of the way it is now. Basically it heats up irregularly and such and I just dont like using it anymore (I even tried to clean it too) . So when your mapping on a laptop please use a cooler for your own good.
