Dual Dimension Decimal Places

I am unable to set and control the number of decimal places of dual dimensions on a drawing.

I can change the decimal places of the primary dim easily but it has no impact on the secondary dims. I want the secondary dim to have 2 decimal places even if it is an even number ie 6.00 Right now I have 3 decimal places for the primary but if it is an exact number for the secondary dim all I get is 6 with no decimal places.

I have the drawing option set:

dual_digits_diff -1

WF 4.0 M170

Windows 7 64bit

Thanks!

RE: Dual Dimension Decimal Places

Have you tried:

The drawing setup file option "lead_trail_zeros" controls the display. The proper values are:

std_default English dimensions will show trailing zeros and metric dimensions will show leading zeros

std_metric Dimensions will show leading zeros regardless of model or drawing units

std_english Dimensions will show trailing zeros regardless of model or drawing units

both Dimensions will show both leading and trailing zeros regardless of model or drawing units
