Whenever I set the scale ratio, it doesn't measure using what I entered, it rounds up. For instance, I enter .125 inches but it rounds to .13. It also happens when I enter other inch ratios too. The measuring is then just an estimate measurement not true to the scale. I'm trying to measure in feet. How do I stop that rounding from happening? Rounding throws measuring and dimensions off, I would like to measure using the scale I enter not the rounded dimension. Would someone know how to do it? Thanks.

Hello Bernd, thanks for responding. What I'm referring to is the Measuring Tool where you can change the scale ratio. I don't use a javascript for this, it's the window setting itself. It rounds automatically by itself and it usually rounds upward. It kinda defeats setting a dimension selection. If I want to enter a dimension it should accept it, not round it up. It's very important to get an accurate measurement. How can that be called a measuring tool? If using this tool in the building trade on a set of plans it could throw the take off out of line. Is there a way to stop that from happening? I don't think so. I'm using Acrobat X Pro and Reader DC. It does the same rounding whichever one I use. Check your Measuring Tool in your own Acrobat app. You'll see what I mean. Enter a few different ratios in the window, for example, .125 or .378 and so on.
