Trailing zeros how to display in drawing

Hello, how do i display zeros after the decimal place on dimension a view in a drawing? I have a dimension of 1 mm, but i want to display it as 1.0 to make it look better and to reflect the accuracy.

Its not significant figures as this is set as 3 for my drawing.

I have looked in File-Prepare-Drawing Properties-Detail Options.

Then I tried changing the:

lead_trail_zeros and

lead_trails _zeros_scope.

But nothing seems to make any difference. Can anyone help? Am I looking in correct area, and if so what do I need to set these two to display all the zeros as specified for my decimal places.

Thanks

Creo seems to have done it itself not sure if it just needed the drawing closing and reopening.

I think it must have been in the area I suggested earlier.

Pick the dimension, right mouse to "Properties".

Trailing zeros on metric dimensions violates ASME Y14.5 rules for dimensioning!

See section 1.6.1of ASME Y14.5-2009 for Millimeter Dimensioning.

Decimal places on metric dimensioned drawings are not to be used for specifying tolerancing.
