In the course of laying out a kitchen I created a string of dimensions between cabinets. When I moved the floor plan to a layout book some of the dimensions changed, such as 3'-4" showed up as 3'-3 31/32". Several other dimensions also changed by a small increment. Back in the project map the dimension remains correct. How can I be assured that whatever I create in the project map will stay the same when I format the drawing?
Thanks again. I think that did it. I made some changes in there although all I changed was the sensitivity of the fractions (1/64 to 1/8 :? ). The drawing on the layout did not update automatically but after I deleted it and reset it everything looks fine.
You should create a named Project Preferences > Dimensions set with the Units and Fractional accuracy you want to display for the View, then assign that Dimension setting to that View, similar to creating and assigning a Layer Combination to a View. This is separate from the Working Units.
I don't understand the last part about 'assigning that Dimension setting to a view'. I was able to Name the dimensions preferences I want with the 'Store as' button. But I don't know where to go after that. There doesn't appear to be anything in the 'Settings' Dialog box when in 'Layout Book' that correlates to dimensioning. Thank you for help
