PreDelivered HIGH PRECISION Property Data Format is completely wrong.

I've discovered that HIGH PRECISION is incorrectly setup...

The Precision value is 0.0000000 which is correct... but the Leading and, in particular Trailing Zero Suppression should not be turned off... a value of 10.000 comes across as an integer and not as a decimal... this prevents proper resolution of calculations in a formula property... at least in my case.


Can you fix this in a subsequent release or SP?

The High Precision property data format is used by some properties in the  set called "DuctEngineeringData."  This is a specialty hard coded property set that our duct objects interface with.  We change this, it's likely to break other unintentional areas.  You should create a new property data format based on High Precision that is set your way.  It can reside in your template and would always be available.
