I dimension a rectangle as shown in the attachments.
I get a problem with dimensioning anything that is " 3/8" ". I know that sounds weird but this is the case. It always shows up as 5/16" unless I change the precision to an eigth. Please see attachments to understand what I mean.
First, your rectangle isn't 1 3/8" in length. It is 1.325" long. 0.325 is closer to 5/16" than 3/8". When you set your dimension style to a precision of 1/16th, your rectangle would have to be more than 1 11/32" or 1.34375" to show 1 3/8" for a dimension.
Secondly, as Dean wrote, why not just draw it to 1.375" in length, if that is what you want the dimension to read?? Makes no sense to try and "fudge" the dimension read-out with precision. No anomaly with what you are doing. It is pretty chrystal clear to the rest of us.
