I keep hving trouble with a hole and the diameter tolerance.
Create a simple hole, single diameter concentric and specific depth. I go to the tolerance window for the diameter and change it to a Limits-Linear. I enter my values .3758 and .3754. Precision is .1234. I clikc OK, then go back to the tolerance, and its reset both values to .3756 What gives???? I've deleted and recreated the hole, edited it about 10 times, and still the same effect. What could I be doing wrong? Thanks!

Ah, I double checked again, this model didn't have the 4 place in the precision in the Document Settings. Seems pretty stupid that you need to dig and figure that out when your tolerances are resetting. It kept showing the full 4 places in the window for the dimension edit, so never considered a document setting being the issue! Shouldn't the setting WITHIN a particular feature override the document global? If I need one 5 place decimal, I should have the entire document on 5-place? That's stupid!
