Can acrobat measure with 3 decimal places right now i can only do 2 and it really sucks because a lot of my files are at least 3 decimals. example for my gaps it should be 0.125 it rounds to 0.13. I need the third or 4th decimal if possible.

Thanks for the answer. Just a point of clarification:

  1. Select "Measuring Tool"
  2. Right click anywhere on the screen, for the menu to pop up showing the "Change Scale Ratio and Precision" (Make sure you are NOT selecting an existing dimension when right-clicking, because this will bring up a different right-click menu)
  3.  Make your units precision change

 

I believe the precision changes will only effect dimensions you add after making the change. Do you know if there is a way to update existing dimensions to the new precision? Thanks 🙂
