Point Elevation Display

547 Views, 3 Replies

I have been trying to find where to change the number of spaces behind the decimal point from three to two (thousandths to hundredths) on the point elevation displayed in the drawing. I am afraid I can not find it anywhere. I need 0.000 to display as 0.00. Can anyone please help?
Thanks,
Linda Mieth

And I'm sure it takes far less time to follow on-screen than that took to type. Or read-through. Thanks, Angel. Looks like my days of providing screen captures are coming to an abrupt end.

Thank you so much!
I just loaded Civil 3 D and I could not seem to find it in HELP. I have spent hours going thru all of the different settings now available.
