See attached file.

The top of beam is at -7 1/2" and the bottom of beam is -3' 3 1/2".


What's the reason it shows 7 1/2", not - 7 1/2"?  It's very confusing because it's below 0'-0" ground floor level.

Think I've got it - it starts out with 0 (thats zero) feet.  Typically signs are trimmed when formatting numbers with a leading 0, but this is one of the times where thats not the case.  Probably worth a bug report.

If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

How can I report it as a bug?  I want this to be included in the 2013 release.

Because it's so confusing when you thought you clicked something wrong but in fact the unit display is wrong.


See attached file for more details.


When I click the top of the beam, it should be -6.5" (that's wrong, it's shown as 6.5")

Bottom of the beam, it should be -3'-3.5" (that's correct in the model)

The overall depth of the beam is 2'-9" (that's correct in the model)
