In our models we have set up as a standard to use only 4 decimal places but when we use shown dimensions in the drawing it also shows it as 4 decimal places. When we change the DTL file to show only 2 decimal places in the drawing it automatically rounds the part up and changing our design. Therefore we either have to leave the four decimal places in our drawing or use the added dimension feature instead of shown dimensions to control the decimal places.
Has anybody found a way to set the number decimal places in the model as one value and have a different number of decimal places in the drawing while using the shown dimensions?
Has anyone found an answer to this? In other threads there is a suggestion to add [.X] (where "X" is the desired number of decimal places.) after the parameter that controls the dimension. When I right click on a dimension in a drawing and select Properties and go to the Text tab and place [.X] after the dimension it only adds "[.X] after the dimension - and does not change the number of decimal places.
To set the number of decimal places on the drawing you can always use the #Format #Decimal places..., then type the desired number of decimal places and select entities you want to apply the decimal places to.

I'm working to remodel an IGES import that evidentially wasn't modeled in any even units. The dimensions are all odd numbers, out to 6+ decimal places, whether in MM or Inches. I'm modeling to 5 place accuracy (in inches) to duplicate the IGES file.
The challenge is that during feature creation, even entering a 5 place number, Pro|E rounds to 3 places. The only way to get a true 5 place number is to create the feature, then edit it and re-enter the 5 place dimension, which Pro|E will then take without rounding. This seems inconsistent. Either Pro|E should always override the entry to 3 match the config settings, or it should allow manual entry to any decimal place desired. I also don't recall WF2 acting this way.
For sketched features, I can change the sketcher preferences to 5 places and solve it. For non sketched features like rounds, chamfers, offset planes, feature depths, etc. I cannot.
How do I get Pro|E to take the 5 place number the first time?
Guru's, I am placing the volume in a format ( &pro_mp_volume ) no how do I control the amount of decimal places? I though I could use [.1] but doesn't seam to work.
Anyone have any ideas?
Cheers in advance
