decimal places


I'm sure this has been addressed but I couldn't dig it up. How do I change the number
of decimal places the drawing defaults to? I'm working in metric and would like
to draw to 0.000mm, but it automatically rounds me off to 2 places.
I've tried changing the round-off point in the Dimensions tab but that does nothing.
I'm sure this is simple to do!
Regards, Stew

Stew,
Go to the "File Properties" and select the "Units" tab. That's where you can set
the precision.

Thanks Ed. After two days of messing with it I figured it out within minutes of your
post!
Cheers, Stew
