Annotative Text Styles

When I want to establish a new annotative text style, and I'm in the Text Styles dialog box, in the "Size" box, why will it not let me enter a Paper Text Height of 3/32"???  Every time I try it defaults to either 1/16" or 1/8".  I have checked the Annotative box.   Thanks for helping!

What is the current linear units precision for your drawing?  AutoCAD will take 3/32" as input, but if your linear precision is set to 1/8" or 1/16", it will round the 3/32" value to the precision that is set prior to displaying the results.  (It should not change the 3/32" value, just make it impossible to tell if it was entered correctly, without changing the precision.)

Man, I'm almost embarrassed!   The Units setting was EXACTLY what the problem was - the precision was set to 1/16" instead of 3/32".  Such a simple fix, but my annotative text works really good now!  Thanks, David!
