Need to have different default decimal accuracy in model and drawing

Need to have different default decimal accuracy in model and drawing

In Wildfire I had the option to have 8 default decimal places in the model sketcher, and 3 default decimal places in the drawing.  It appears in Creo that option has been disabled.  This is causing a large amount of extra work when creating drawings.  Now we have to edit every dimension that is created in a drawing just to set the decimal places to 3, since our models need 8 place accuracy.  If you use the selection filter and bulk collect the dimensions to change them all at once, you still have to go back and rearrange the dimensions.  The bulk collection method also assumes you have all the dimensions needed at that time, which is not likely when you are doing larger drawings (we have many drawings with up to 9 pages).  I have spoken with Kyle Tabor at Tristar and Amit Deshpande at PTC and they are aware of the time wasted making drawings this way.
