Dimension precision doesn't update upon change


Using VW2019 Architect.  If I change the precision of my dimensions say from .1mm to .01mm, existing dimensions don't update.  New dimensions take on the set precision. 


Is this expected behaviour?  I would expect any change to the dimension units, or precision, would update automatically.


UPDATE:  Things do update automatically IF I change to different units, then change back.  (i.e.:  if I change to inches, then back to mm with any precision, the dimensions all update as expected)

In my opinion, since each dimension can have its precision set individually in the OIP, this is the designed and correct behavior.


If I have manually set the precision for some dimensions and not for others and then I choose to change the setting for the document, I would not want the new document setting to necessarily override my manual settings. Think site plan versus detail.


You can either use your change the units (though I bet it only works if you change to fractional fee & inches) or select all the dimensions and change the setting in the OIP.

Thanks for the reply.  I'll carry on then, and select all and update when necessary.
