This setting is shown in the upper left corner of the table, just below the monetary units used.

Generating a Pump/System Curve for a Selected Time Step

System and Pump vs System curves always reflect the conditions at the first time step. To graph curves at a different time step, run the simulation to the time step of interest, then create a disconnected scenario from the View menu. Load this new scenario and use it to generate the system / pump vs system curve.
