How to change the number of decimal places of the elevation of points?

How to change the number of decimal places of the elevation of  points?

 

as the points are labeled with their elevations, I couldn’t find how the number of the decimal places of the elevation be chosen. In this case, I wanted to let the number of the decimal places to be zero.

 

How to set the number of the decimal places to be zero or 1, for example? how to sepcify it height (size)?

 

Please, have a look on the screenshot below.

 

Thank you for the help,

 

Best

In the Settings of your Toolspace, right-click on the drawing name and select Edit drawing settings.  Once there, click on the Ambient Settings tab.  This is where you will change the precision.

If the issue was resolved by this method, please click on "Accept As Solution"

You need to change the precision in your point label style. Go to your setting tab of your toolspace.

Many thanks for the answer.

 

still I’m confused in how to control this precision! where might be the tab that controls the precision?

See if this helps. Now I am showing changing the Standard label style, you will have to choose the correct one if you have multiple.
