How do you change the display precision for an element property so that more numbers are shown after the decimal point?

Problem ID#: 80512


There are a couple of ways of doing this. First, you can change this in the Properties grid for an element. Right-click on the attribute name or unit and select "Units and Formatting". A new dialog will open, with Display Precision being one of the items. Make a change and select Okay.

Similarly, you can open the element FlexTable and right-click on a column header. Then select "Units and Formatting" here as well.

Finally, you can change the display precision by going to Tools > Options, then selecting the Units tab. Display precision is one of the items that can be changed in the table shown.
