Description 5984hseprq 2005-02-05 12:39:03 UTC
Hello dear Helper.

Basically I am very happy using OO drawing capabilities.
However, it would be much better and more accurate for me, as I work with very
small dimensions designing products and equipment in "mymeter", if the
capability to get three decimal points was given.

Thanks for making this real.

You can right-click each dimension line, go to dimensioning dialog and set the
line to three decimal points manually.
Besides this there is no default method to set all lines to three decimal
points. Reassigned.

Thanks for hint with click-right etc.

However it does not help as:
a. There is no way to draw objects with three decimal points.
b. The dimension line only show two decimal points.

It would really be very helpful to have the capability to create drawings with
three decimal point "right through", as a choice.

Many Thanks for working on this.

I think what the User is getting at, is actually providing the measurement units
of 'Microns' (um) (0.001mm). This is used extensively in the scientific
community and would be a useful addition to OOo. Changed Summary to reflect this.
