WF5 decimal places


WF5 decimal places

I am working on testing out Wildfire 5 and am running into a weird issue.

I have a part modeled at 8.126 long, I change the decimal properties to a two place dimension, the dimension shows as 8.13 on the screen, the drawing shows 8.13 but it still measures out at 8.126 and shows 8.126 in the Dimension Properties window.

What am I missing??? Why doesn't the part change to be 8.13 long?

WF5 M060

Thanks in advance

I seem to remember that the default handling of rounding changed in WF5.
A rounded driving dimension used to do as you describe, change the size
of the part. Now by default it does not. I think there's a config
option for it, but I don't know what it is.
