Dialog display size

User has asked if the input areas (circled) can be made larger?  His concern is when the number is something like 1.000000000000000000035, you don't see the 35 on the end, and he would like to know it's not exactly 1.0.

 

I suspect this is hard coded, since I can enter a seemingly endless string of numbers, and having the dialog box expand out to fit it, could potentially go across the screen.

 

Any setting buried someplace in the customer defaults that I missed?

There is a default for the width of dialog boxes (see image), but it doesn't change the width of the entry fields, that I can tell.

Dave -

Why do they need to know?

Does it cause an issue?

 

If I understand correctly, note that (due to the way floating point numbers are stored in binary) it is highly likely that *all* floating number will have small differences (like you point out).

Even if you enter "1.0", save/close/re-open the part, it will likely change to 1.000000000xxx

Re: Dialog display size

The width of the entry field is fixed.

 

I am also curious why the user is interested. Is this causing a problem?

Do you have a manufacturing process that is that accurate ? ;*)

I would speculate that it is user OCD.

 

After talking to the user, it's also related to coming from Solidworks.  As I understand it, SW doesn't show past 6(?) decimal places.  If there are 'hanging' numbers out at 15 decimal places, you wouldn't know it.

 

NX displays 11 decimal places, but from memory it calulates to 16?
