Prospector Northing/Easting precision

C3D 2013.  When I look at _All Points in the prospector my coordinates (northing/easting) have a precision to four decimal places.  How do I change this to default to two??

Thanks in advance.

  1. Toolspace>Settings
  2. Right click on your drawing
  3. Then click on "Edit ng Settings".
  4.  "Ambient Settings" tab

EDIT:  When I tested this, the change didn't take effect until I saved, closed and reopened the file.  And I'm on C3D 2012

Awesome!!  That worked great.  Didn't realize there were ambient settings there also.

Thanks.

Glad to help and I didn't know it either.  I just looked around for something that I thought might do it.

I had the same problem, but changing it in the drawing settings didn't work for me, so here is the solution a classmate found:

 

*Also, the ambient settings didn't show that an override was happening, which was a little frusterating

 

 

There were only three points to edit, so I first did this individually (opt b) but the pictures show how to change it for that entire label style(which would have been smarter to do in the first place)

For option B, it will bring you to the same style menu, but will only change the point selected.

 

While I was in this menu, I also changed the semi-colon to '='

 

I still don't know how to find where to change the point style for a specific label style, so I had to remove the point marker in Panorama.

 

If anyone else had this problem, I hope this helps :smileyhappy:
