Description cobbr2 2003-01-11 00:32:34 UTC
I use Draw for a simple drafting tool.  However, working with Imperial measures,
I'd like to (a) state the precision I need my dimensions in, and (b) get them
formatted as fractions.  I can do that in some other drawing tools, including Visio.

It seems to me that using the number formats from CALC would give me both
features.  I'd expect this to be on the Dimensions... UI.

I've upgraded consistently. 3.0 supports (a) of my suggestion, but not (b), that is, it still does not support 
fractional formats. It is still an approximation, as opposed to the rational arithmetic support in Calc. That 
is, in Calc, I can get 5 / 3 to display 1 2/3 (and more importantly for my application, 5.0625 to be 5 1/16)

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
