B) B) Allow different rounding accuracy levels based on viewset Although, I also just considered blanketly locking rounding at 1/16"This definitely relates to user preferences, but is one that probably should be variable within the project.
B) Ideallly, I'd like dimension rounding to act like a Display Option. As I have come to understand Archicad dimension preferences, that's what rounding is anyway. Although, I also just considered blanketly locking rounding at 1/16" (which is what most of our staff wants anyway). I do see the value in changing rounding to 1/8" for plans, though (as long as people make sure their dimensions still add up!!)
why not just have the setting apply to the individual dimension string instead of setting up a system that changes placed strings, which to my mind is dangerousThat's kind of the way dimension preferences work NOW anyway, and this discussion is about using the API to modify what we have now. What you are proposing may not even be possible using the Developer's Kit, and is a wishlist item for Graphisoft.
