Point file .pts import truncating accuracy

Point file .pts import truncating accuracy

All,



I'm trying to import a series of points, generated externally and formatted into a .pts file. I'm following the route of Point -> Offset Coordinate System -> Import.



I have a previous model where we've done this and the points are reported at full accuracy (7 or 8 decimal places). However, today when I import the points the values are being truncated (or rounded) to 3 decimal places, which is enough to create visible imperfects at the scale I'm working. If I manually edit a value with more decimal places they are truncated (or rounded) off again.



Is this related to model accuracy - which is currently absolute, 0.01 (mm) - or a config option somewhere?



Thanks!
Jonathan

look at the config option default_dec_places.

Sorry - I was working up from old to new; missed seeing the summary.
