UNITS OF MEASURE

I was hoping this would be fixed.

3'-12" instead of 4'-0" ?

Hi Steve,
Are you entering this value directly into the schedule, or is the schedule retrieving the info? When we try to enter it directly, the value changes ok to full feet.

It was automatically generated that way. Possoibly the result of original units in decimal feet and then changing the units to Feet and Inches ?

Obviously a rounding problem.
Has been happening to me in roof schedules for years.
It has been mentioned in the forums before.
Here is one example.

I am still hoping we get the opportunity to use DMS in the roof tool so we can model exactly what we want rather than having to use the closest decimal conversion to display the (sometimes incorrect) DMS value in the schedules.
