AW: Rounding error. Changing priority.

I believe this has the same origin as:
Issue 26783 - Dimension/Grid is off when using inches, but not cm.

Quote from i26783:
AW: This is just a numerical problem, but not solvable ATM. Internally,
DrawingLayer is working on 1/100th mm, thus using a metric entity. All scalings
to metric work well, then. This is used in Calc and Draw/Impress, regardless of
the UI measurements used (this is just for the UI). In Writer, twips are used as
the base and everything which is a multiple of twips will work.

Though I prefer metric in day to day life, when I design cabinets, I need to use
inches. Having this dimension line issue fixed (and any others related to it)
would be a very welcomed. This is still an issue in 2.4. When I use 1/8 in
increments, many of the dimension line measurements display incorrectly (11.124
instead of 11.125).

AW: May be fixed with #i89872#, need to check if that fix is integrated.
Comment 7 Armin Le Grand 2009-06-17 15:40:48 UTC
AW->petepdx: Could You please check if this works for You after #i89872# is
fixed (it's in DEV300 m38 codeline, so OOo 3.1 should be Your friend)
