In the context menu of the dimension line, choose "Dimensions...". 3. In the Dimensioning dialog increase stepwise the value of "Decimal places" and observe the Preview field (the default value by two decimal places is 5.73 " and the upper limit of decimal places is 99). Decimal Preview field places [inch] 2 5.73 3 5.73 4 5.7299 5 5.72992 6 5.729921 7 5.7299213 8 5.72992126 9 -2.147483648 Notice that: 2^31 = 2,147,483,648 Continuing the "exercise"... 10 -.2147483648 11 0.-2147483648 12 0.0-2147483648 and so on... However the effect not limited to the Preview field in the Dimensioning dialog. 4. Close the Dimensioning dialog. 5. Set the width of the dimension line to 5 inches (I used that value in the attached .odg file) and increase the number of decimal places via the Dimensioning dialog. Observe the effect starting with 9 decimal places. Expected result: no numerical artefacts Question: what it the rationale behind such a large allowable number of decimal places i.e. 99?```
