Displayed limits

My nominal dimension in the model is a place decimal but what I want displayed on the drawing is 4 places:  Ex. 1.76925 with a tolerance of ±.00025.  This should drive 1.7695 / 1.7690.  When I go into the dimension properties, if I change the dec. places in the "Value and Display" at the top it changes my 1.76925 to 1.7693.  When I change the decimal places to 4 in the "Tolerance" section with limits set to what I want displayed it changes back to a 5 place dec.

I have changed my Tol_Display to Yes in both my drawing/prepare and also in the Config.pro.  Neither has made a difference.  Is ther something else I need to change?  I know the logical person is going to say "Well ya, you took 1.76925 and said make me 4 place".  What I am trying to do is what can be done in Solid Works in 3 seconds.

Please help

Re: Displayed limits

You need to check "Rounded Dimension Value" before changing the decimal places to 4.

The answer appears to be Check the Rounded Dimension Value BEFORE changing desired dec places.  Thanks Tom Uminn.
