Hoist Tool 2021 - Rounded Dimensions Toggle


Recommended Posts

I'm playing catch up on some of my reports and worksheets in VW and converting from the now legacy hoist tool to the new version.  


I know it is a bit like an apples and oranges comparison. 


Is there an equivalent of the rounded dimension check box from 2020 and earlier in the hoist tool in 2021?  I've looked and I cannot seem to find it.


I like this for me personally because I used that field in reports to avoid fractional values without needing to adjust anything in the document unit settings.


I tired finding something but have not been able to find that similar option, any help is appreciated.

Currently this can't be done directly in the hoist properties but you can set up a Hoist data tag that will do it for you

use the criteria 'Origin - #OriginX# and change the units from document units to your desired units with a precision of 1, repeat for the Y origin


I have made an enhancement request to have the option added to the new hoist object.
