Specifications

Basic units

One of the selections is activated by clicking the left mouse button on the job.

Meter : If checked, the unit of information text will be meters.
Centimeter : If checked, the unit of the callout will be centimeter.
Millimeter : If checked, the unit of callout will be millimeter.
Feet and fractional inches : If checked, the unit of callout is feet and fractional inches. The unit format is, for example, 15 '-10 3/4 ".
Feet and decimal-digit inches : If checked, the unit of callout is feet and decimal-digit inches. Unit format is, for example, 15' -10.7".
Decimal place fit: If checked, the unit of callout will be decimal place fit. The unit format is for example 15.89 '.
Fractional inch: If checked, callout unit will be fractional inch. The unit format is, for example, 1901/2 ".
Inch with decimal places : If checked, the unit of callout is inches with decimal places. The unit format is for example 190.7".

Digit count

It determines how many digits will be shown after the comma. The desired number is selected from the list. For example, if 2 is selected, units will be shown as two digits after the comma. If 0 is selected, units will not be shown after the comma.

Fractions

It determines the precision of the dimension to be made in fractional inch format. In the list, there are options with a sensitivity of 1/2, ¼, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/34. If "no fraction" is selected, units will appear without fractions.

Rounding interval

It determines the rounding range of the measurement to be made in meters, centimeters or millimeters. If No rounding is selected, the dimensioning is done at exact value. As the range gets larger, the dimensioning is rounded up to the selected range.

Show zero unit

If it is not checked, it does not show the zero and point on the left in dimensioning. For example, it measures 0.20 as 20. If marked, the value 0.20 is scaled as 0.20.

Small fraction text

When fractional inch format is selected, determines the fractional part to display in upper / lower case. If it is checked, the fraction is slightly above the integer and small, if not, the fraction is shown the same size next to the integer.

Show zero foot

Determines whether 0 is displayed in the 0-foot gauge (less than 1 foot gauge). For example, if it is not checked, it will show a measure of 0 '- 15 "as -15". If marked, it shows as 0'-15 ".
