Dimention error

It is first time i encoutered quiet an anusual problem with dimentions. Having dimentions rounding set to one decimal place, and hide trailing zero's some dimentions show value like: 7340,999999999999


When I measure the same elements, but dividing it into rooms or grids, all dimentions seem ok, and work without rounding. I can't imagine writing dimentions as text with some "invisible dots" and it is rather uncommon to print final drawings with this kind of dimentioning.


Does anyone found a solution for that problem, was it ever encountered?


Best Regards

Open the type properties of the dimension, open Units Format. Maybe "Use project settings" is off?

I tried both ways (settings in dimention family and settings in project units).


Anyway the problem got fixed, by update 2, which i luckily installed because of some other error :smileyvery-happy:
