Number of decimals displayed for real type attribute in Windchill PDMLink

Number of decimals displayed for real type attribute in Windchill PDMLink

We need a way to control maximum number of decimal values for real type attributes in Windchill. When real type values are published from Creo, they have14 decimals, which is confusing and mess up the UI.

I propose that you should be able to set a limitation of maximum decimals in the type-manager per real number attribute.

‌that's something which should actualy be a basic feature. I've tried to implement some datautility,  but it's not that easy to show the value on all layout's and tables.

Hi Björn

I agree. The users think is a bugg. Hard to explain that is "working to spec". Even harder to explain that we  need to customize to get the system readable. Hope PTC will implement a solution asap.

As you say. Not a "Product Idea". It's a bug!

Even in my old TI calculator I can set

* Engineering Notation

* Scientific Notation

* 'normal'.

I would suggest a preferences item that allows us to set this to one of those settings.

Obviously a common requirement after working with Windchill and choosing data model which suits the digital twin.
