Cannot change number of decimal places in elevation label

The defaul label style for the Elevation of points is set to 3 decimal places. We are trying to change the elevation display to 2 decimal places. We have tried the directions in the following discussion: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-Civil-3D/How-to-change-the-number-of-decimal-places-of-the-ele...

 

Which is:

 

Toolspace

->Settings

-->Drawing name

--->Edit Drawing Settings

---->Ambient Settings

----->Elevation

------>Precision -> We modify from 3 to 2 decimal places.

 

It does not modify the display settings.

 

Also:

 

Toolspace

->Settings

-->Drawing

--->Point

---->Label Styles

----->(right-click) Edit label styles

------>Layout

------->Text

-------->Contents

--------->click on the "..." (three points) button

(Open "Text Component Editor - Contents"

--------->Select Point Elevation in the driop down list.

---------->Precision: Set to 0.01

------------>Ok, Apply, etc...

 

This does not seem to work either.

 

Any suggestions appreciated.

 

Thanks,

The second method is the one that will work.  You are probably forgetting to press the arrow button that applies the changes.  After you modify the precision you have to press the arrow that "applies" that change to the text field.  See attached image.

When you make the change in the point style did you hit the arrow in the upper as shown. If you did not it does not push the setting to the style.Precision.png
