Line Labels Bearing and Distance Precision

I would like to set the line labels bearing and distance precision in the following manner.

 

N89° 22' 05"W, not N89° 22' 05.00"W

 

225.00', not 225.000'

 

I went to Toolspace > Settings (Active Drawing Settings View) > Line > Edit Label Style Defaults..., but I didn't find anything relevant. Please see the attached files.

Hi Mark,
Set precision in the Label Style.

Thanks for replying! Can you provide a screenshot of where I change the precision at?

The quickest way there would be to select the label you have and choose "Edit Label Style" from the right click menu.

I didn't notice the screen shots you included in your reply, therefore I asked for screen shots. I opened up this forum on my cell phone at work this morning. Sorry. I got down to the attached screenshot. I noticed precision is already set to 0.01, yet on the drawing it's 0.001. Strange.

@mnhollinger in your screenshot it is showing the current default for if you were going to be adding a new one. Select the text in the preview and it will show what the label is set to use. Change the setting to the desired precision then be sure to hit the arrow next to the property to send it to the preview window.

Mark,
As Jeff says, select the text to see what the precision is set to. Then don't forget to hit the arrow button.

Still a no go. No change to current bearing and distance labels. I even exploded the parcel to erase the labels, joined the segments and labeled again. No change in precision. Will try again tomorrow.

@mnhollinger post your dwg and I, or someone, will create a step by step using your dwg/styles.
